Jack Black Is A Man-Witch
Black magic in new Todd Phillips comedy

19 June 2007  |  Written by   |  Source: Variety

submit to reddit

Jack Black is teaming up with Old School director Todd Phillips for Man-Witch. This is not, as some readers might think, a tale of sandwiches for men, but a comedy about a man who discovers he has witch-like abilities and is persuaded to join a school for people with a talent for building gingerbread houses and pulling off the pointy hatted look, only to discover that all the rest of his classmates are girls.

Sounds a bit like a mix between The Worst Witch and 1980s Rodney Dangerfield comedy Back To School. And, really, what's not awesome about that sentence?
