In 1993, writer and director Richard Linklater made a film about coming of age in the 1970s. Quickly gaining cult-status, Dazed and Confused helped launch the careers of Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich, Parker Posey, and this guy.
In 2014, Linklater released one of the most ambitious films of all time, filming Boyhood over twelve years. His efforts earned Linklater and the cast five Golden Globe nominations and six Academy Award noms, cementing it in film history.
Now Linklater is readying to release his latest film about, you guessed it, coming of age.
Everybody Wants Some follows college baseball players in the 1970s as they navigate freshman year and find their place in the world. Billed as the ‘spiritual sequel’ to Dazed and Confused, the new film stars Glee’s Blake Jenner, The Boy Next Door’s Ryan Guzman, Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin, Vampire Academy’s Zoey Deutch and newcomer Wyatt Russell (we use ‘newcomer’ loosely – his parents are Goldie Hawn and Kurt Russell).
Everybody Wants Some hits theatres on April 15, 2016.
