AUSTIN (CBSDFW.COM) – The cast of “School of Rock” reunited in Austin on Thursday to celebrate the film’s 10-year anniversary. Jack Black and Miranda Cosgrove — who was just 10 years old when the comedy was made — were among the cast members in attendance.
The event was sponsored by the Austin Film Society, and included a screening of the movie along with a special on-stage rock performance by the cast members.
Cosgrove shared several photos of the reunion on Instagram, along with an older picture of the cast from back in 2003. “10-year ‘School of Rock’ reunion! Sooo good to see everyone,” the young star wrote. Cosgrove has gone on to appear in television shows like “iCarly” and films like “Despicable Me.”
“School of Rock” originally opened in theaters in October 2003 and earned about $131 million at the box office. The movie stars Black as a rock star wannabe who accepts a substitute teaching job at a preparatory school, only to transform his class of elementary-aged students into a rock band.
The comedy was directed by Richard Linklater and written by Mike White, who also appeared in the movie in a supporting role.
While much of the film was shot in New York, Linklater is based in Texas and was one of the founders of the Austin Film Society in 1985. In fact, many of his earlier works — including “Slacker” and “Dazed and Confused” — were shot in and around the Austin area.
White participated along with his father in the 14th season of the CBS reality competition show “The Amazing Race.”
