Boyhood's Richard Linklater set to direct adaptation of hit novel Where'd You Go Bernadette
Richard Linklater, director of School Of Rock, Dazed and Confused and the hugely critically acclaimed drama Boyhood, is in talks to direct the new adaptation of best-selling novel Where'd You Go Bernadette.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, Linklater has been approached and is interested in taking on the adaptation of Maria Semple's 2012 best seller.
The book centres around Bernadette Branch, an agoraphobic architect who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. The story is told in a quirky manner that involves the use of emails, letters, F.B.I. documents, correspondence with a psychiatrist and various other documents. It has been adapted by Fault in Our Stars writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber and will be made by Annapurna Pictures.
Linklater's new movie That's What I'm Talking About, a comedy that follows the lives of a number of college kids over a particularly weekend, is due out later this year. It will star Blake Jenner and Zoey Deutch.
