JoBlo reports that actor Jack Black revealed at the "King Kong" junket recently that he is still working with writers Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab on developing the film version of his proposed 1999 TV series "Heat Vision and Jack".
Back in '99, Fox passed on the show which would tell the story of an astronaut who flies too close to the sun and returns to Earth with super intelligence and fights crime with the help of his talking motorcycle (voiced by Owen Wilson) and fighting the villianous Ron Silver (the actor playing himself).
While nothing is set in stone, Black said he was working with the writers on a concept for the film and mentioned it as one of his possible upcoming flicks.
