Back to High School?

As Bowie's new film debuts at Sundance, Variety is reporting that he is in talks to take on his next movie project. And one can only hope it is a better move than it sounds.

Will is a musical comedy/drama very much in the style (and possibly image) of the excrable High School Musical series of films, and even starring one of it's leading actresses, Vanessa Hudgens. The movie will be directed by Todd Graff and revolves around a group of high school misfits who decide to form a musical group to perform in a Battle of the Bands competition. Aside from Mr Bowie, the only good news here is that the mother of one of the girls will be played by the wonderful Lisa Kudrow.

No news is forthcoming on what role the the great man might play in the film, but one can only hope it isn't too cringeworthy. In the meantime, I really should be posting up an image or a video that relates to this story in some way or other. But I just can't bring myself to do it. So instead, here he is performing Heroes on the 1977 Bing Crosby Special.
