Jack Black and Richard Linklater on 'Bernie,' crafts and gospel
Producer Scott Rudin set up Jack Black and Richard Linklater nearly a decade ago for "School of Rock," with Rudin persuading the indie filmmaker to tackle the commercial comedy. Black and Linklater reunited this year for "Bernie," a disquieting, dark comedy chronicling the true story of the relationship between a crabby East Texas widow and the affable assistant mortician who became her only friend and, in one dark moment, her killer.
