Penn Screenwriter’s Film Rocks Into Theaters Today!

Last summer I reported that screenwriter Ryan Jaffe (C’96) just finished filming The Rocker.

And today it’s now in theaters near you!

Per Ryan, “The Rocker stars Rainn Wilson, Christina Applegate, Will Arnett, Jason Sudekis, Jeff Garlin, Jane Lynch, Emma Stone, Josh Gad, and Teddy Geiger. It’s the story of a drummer that gets fired from a band just before they become really famous and earns a second shot at rock stardom twenty years later when he hooks up with his teenage nephew’s band.”

Check out how Ryan’s beginnings and how he got his film produced!
