posted on by Egan Loo
Variety reports that shooting has begun on Lock and Roll Forever, the musical feature starring the six-girl "entertainment ska rock" band Oreskaband. Oreskaband performed ending themes for both Naruto and Bleach, and also performed live in America at the SXSW music festival, Anime Expo 2007, and the Vans Warped Tour. The musical's plot will be a fictional mirroring of the band's rise in America, as members of the band had described it in an ANN interview.
In addition to the six members of Oreskaband, the feature will also star Lucas Grabeel (High School Musical), Ike Barinholtz, Taylor Negron, Brad Dourif and Naoko Nozawa. Another High School Musical alumni, Peter Barsocchini, is writing the script for Chris Grismer to direct. The High School Musical television movie trilogy's Bill Borden and Barry Rosenbush will produce for T&C Pictures and Sony Music Entertainment Japan with Arata Matsushima as an executive producer.
