Although it seemed like they were just teasing us, claiming that a movie was going to be made, Tenacious D have finally begun work on Tenacious D in the Pick of Destiny. According to NME, shooting for this feature film will begin in March 2005. Liam Lynch, who was responsible for last year’s hit “United States Of Whatever”, has penned the script. The band has also booked time in the studio, so it appears that a soundtrack will be made as the follow-up to their 2001 debut.
In an interview with Billboard, Kyle Gass said: “It's definitely the funniest movie on paper that I've ever read. It starts off as kind of how the D was formed. It goes into a quest for 'the pick,' a magical pick that will supposedly help us rock like the rock gods we so admire. It's a zillion laughs.” A tentative date for release around Christmas 2005 has been set. Bring on the D!!!!
