Jack Black Goes To A Renaissance Fair

I always thought that Renaissance Fairs would be a perfect setting for a comedy. People all dressed up presenting to be in the past – the concept itself is even funny. ScreenDaily reports that Jack Black has been cast in the upcoming romantic comedy Ye Olde Times, a film which is about two Ren competing Fairs. Black is set to play Professor Shockworthy, the narrator of the film and tutor of the (yet to be cast) romantically entwined leads. The under $10 million flick also stars Tim Robbins, Will Arnett and Cary Elwes. John C Reilly is even set to film a cameo. Sounds like a promising concept.
