How Tenacious D Became the Greatest Band on Earth
Wednesday, February 12, 2003 11:38 CST

Tenacious D, the self-proclaimed "greatest band on Earth," is headed to the big screen thanks to a deal with New Line Cinema, reports The Hollywood Reporter.

Actor/comedian/rockers Jack Black and Kyle Gass, the duo that makes up "the D", will star in the film, to be directed by music video helmer Liam Lynch. Black, Gass and Lynch will also write the script, with Black and Gass producing as well. The studio is in negotiations with Ben Stiller's Red Hour Films to produce.

The specific story line of the Tenacious D film is being kept under wraps, but it is said to be a "creation" story revolving around how the duo became the greatest band on Earth.
