Jack Black and director Richard Linklater scored a big hit School Of Rock, and now they’re getting back together for Bernie, which will see Black trying a darker brand of comedy than we’ve had from him before. He plays a small-town Texas mortician who strikes up a friendship with a wealthy widow (Shirley Maclaine). However when he kills her, he goes to great lengths to create the illusion that she’s still alive. Matthew McConaughey co-stars, back with Linklater for the first time since Dazed & Confused. There’s no UK release date set as yet, but it’s out in the US April 27th.
