Jack Black - Jack Black To Play Dragon In Son's Film

Funnyman Jack Black's five-year-old son has caught the filmmaking bug from dad - he has presented the King Kong star with a movie project he wants to make.
Black was stunned when little Sammy handed him a working script for a project titled The Dragon & The Bat and told his father, "I wanna make a movie!"
The comic debuted the budding movie mogul's work during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno on Tuesday (24Apr12) and revealed, "It's pretty dark."
His son's story begins with a dragon waiting to scare a sleeping child, and Black admitted he will be turning the project into a film.
He added, "He's pretty psyched about filming it... and he kinda envisions it having a lot of cartoon special effects and Cgi (computer-generated imagery).
"I hope he's not too bummed when he realises it's just a shot on my iPhone and I will be, like, a cheesy dragon in a costume."
