Thomas Mann shall be King of the Dorks!

1 min read

Fresh off a breakthrough role in Project X, Thomas Mann already has his sights set on a new film project, one that swops roudy high school escapades for a more subdued look at friendship in the 1980s.

It’s called King Dork, and will see Mann potentially team up with Keir Gilchrist for a tale that involves tough times at school, brotherhood and of course, rock ‘n roll.

Based on the novel of the same name by Frank Portman, King Dork deals with the story of Tom (Mann) who happens to be best friends with Sam (Gilchrist), a bullied duo who bond over their love of rock music in the year of 1987.

Ron Swanson, who is getting rave reviews for his scenes in 21 Jump Street is also on board, and will play the step-father of Tom, while DV “High Fidelity” DeVincentis further adapts the property alongside director Matt Piedmont, with funding from NALA films.
