Linklater's 'That's What I'm Talking About' Set for April 2016 Release
Briefly: Paramount Pictures has confirmed a release date for the next Richard Linklater film, following Boyhood, which will hit theaters starting early 2016. Announced by THR, the studio has set a release for Linklater's That's What I'm Talking About for April 15th, 2016 next spring. Described as some kind of "spiritual sequel" to Linklater's Dazed & Confused, this film is set in 1980 about an "incoming freshman experiencing his first weekend in college as a pitcher on the school's nationally ranked baseball team." The story follows Blake Jenner ("Glee") as the freshmen pitcher who "finds himself among a hard partying group of baseball players." It was funded by Megan Ellison's Annapurna Pictures. We've been quite curious about this one ever since Linklater confirmed it was next for him. Stay tuned for the latest release updates.
Always interested to see what Linklater can drum up. If this is a kissing cousin to DAZED AMPERSAND CONFUSED I hope he can bring the laughs.

Really looking forward to this one. Loved Linklater since seeing Slacker when it first came out and have been following him ever since. Dazed And Confused is such a great film, and the prospects of a sort-of sequel to it is just awesome. BTW, I believe the film is now titled Everybody Wants Some...
