(Entertainment Weekly) - If you were a fan of Jack Black’s 2003 comedy School of Rock, in which he taught a classroom of young kids all about music in order to compete in a battle of the bands competition, you’re in luck. Because if Andrew Lloyd Webber has anything to say about it, School of Rock could be coming to a stage near you.

Having just completed his latest project about Stephen Ward, Webber told CBC Radio that he’s “very excited about” the fact that he just gained the rights to “that movie School of Rock.”

Webber described his next project as “a musical about kids playing the guitar” and explained that he might be interested in expanding on the music portion of the film: “There may be songs for me in it, but it’s obviously got songs in it as it stands.”

Can you imagine anyone but Jack Black bringing the role to Broadway?
