Jack Black Movie Filmed In The Hudson Valley Coming To Netflix
A Jack Black movie that was filmed in the lower Hudson Valley will soon be an option next time you're looking to Netflix and chill. The Polka King was one of the most sought after movies for distribution rights after debuting at the Sundance Film Festival reports Screencrush.
Black was spotted in Yonkers in December filming alongside Jenny Slate, Jason Schwartzman and SNL's Vanessa Bayer. The movie tells the tale of Polka legend Jan Lewan who was a con man who milked his family, friends and fans out of thousands of dollars. He was famous for pitching get rich schemes that just never seemed to pan out.
While Netflix has secured the rights, a release date has not been announced. It's expected to see light of day by the end of the year.
But who is this Jan Lewan guy? Here's a taste.
