The Conversation is a feature at Sound on Sight bringing together Drew Morton and Landon Palmer in a passionate debate about cinema new and old. For their seventh piece, they discuss Wim Wenders’s modern classic Paris, Texas (1984).
Throughout Wim Wenders’s Paris, Texas (1984), Travis Henderson (played by Harry Dean Stanton) carries with him a photograph of an empty lot he bought in the eponymous city, which he later tells his son is near “the Red River” that borders Texas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas. The reference automatically draws to mind Howard Hawks’s beloved 1948 Western, Red River, which drew together an unlikely screen pair with John Wayne and Montgomery Clift. That Hawks classic was also featured prominently in Peter Bogdanovich’s canonical 1971 film The Last Picture Show as the “last picture” of the film’s title exhibited at a dwindling moviehouse in an increasingly barren West Texas small town. »

Though she is only 24 years old, Jennifer Lawrence has already had the opportunity to work with some truly amazing directors - and for her next film, The Rosie Project, she may get the chance to add another esteemed name to that list. According to reports, the movie is now eying Boyhood filmmaker Richard Linklater to helm. Deadline has the news on this development, but there's no mention of whether or not an offer has been extended to the Austin-based director yet or if negotiations have begun in earnest yet. Should he sign on, Linklater will be replacing A-listers Phil Lord and Chris Miller, who first became attached to The Rosie Project a little less than a year ago, and will be working with a script from duo Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber (The Spectacular Now, (500) Days of Summer). Based on the novel of the same name by Graeme Simsion, The »
While The Rosie Project recently found its headlining star in Jennifer Lawrence, Sony has been in search of someone to fill the director's chair following the departure of directorial duo Phil Lord and Chris Miller (The Lego Movie). According to Deadline, Richard Linklater might be Sony's guy, or at least he is the studio's prime target. amz asin="1476729093" size="small"Adapted from Graeme Simsion's book of the same name, The Rosie Project tells the story of socially-awkward genetic professor Don Tillman, who comes up with a scientifically sound survey to find his perfect mate. Things get more complicated, however, when he meets Rosie Jarman (Lawrence), a woman who doesn't possess any of the qualities he's looking for yet becomes irresistible to him. For anyone who listens to Ted talks as much as I do, the Tillman character sounds an awful lot like a male version of Amy Webb, who »

Tootsie, The Godfather, A Woman Under the Influence, Cinema Paradiso, To Kill a Mockingbird, Annie Hall and Boogie Nights make the top ten in a new poll of actors asked to name the best movies of all time.

Top Gun 2: Producer David Ellison recently proclaimed: "There is no Top Gun 2 without Maverick," the cocky pilot played by Tom Cruise in the 1986 original. Now Cruise himself says: "If I can figure it out, if all of us can figure it out, it’d be fun to do, I’d like to fly those jets again, but we got to do all the jets practical, no CGI on the jets. … If we can figure all that out, and the Department of Defense will allow us to do it, that would be fun.” The project is currently in the scriptwriting stage. [Extra via The Guardian] The Rosie Project: Richard Linklater (Boyhood) is under consideration to direct The Rosie Project, which is set to star Jennifer Lawrence. It's adapted from a novel by Graeme Simison about a...

The film “focuses on a genetics professor with limited social skills who thinks he has conjured a scientific survey to find a perfect mate. That goes awry when he meets Rosie (Lawrence), a mismatched woman who becomes irresistible to him.”
The film is based on Graeme Simsion’s novel of the same name, which originally had The Lego Movie helmers Phil Lord and Chris Miller attached to direct. They’ve now found another project, so they’ve left the film, but Linklater is an exciting prospect.
Sony Pictures are financing and distributing.

Like Bob: The Musical (more on that one here), it appears the job of directing book adaptation The Rosie Project is now an open assignment, since Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, who had been developing it, are now throwing their full concentration towards a Han Solo film. So who could take over the job of directing Jennifer Lawrence in the lead? Sony wants Boyhood’s Richard Linklater to do it.Written by Graham Simison, the book tells the story of professor Don Tillman, a genetics expert on the Asperger’s scale who never seems to be able to land a second date. He starts The Wife Project, working up a questionnaire to find the perfect partner, but is instead entranced by the free-spirited Rosie (Lawrence), who matches none of his criteria but might just be his soul mate. The book has been big both here and in Australia where it's set, »
Fans of Richard Linklater (Boyhood) may have heard about his spiritual successor to Dazed And Confused and Boyhood, which was dubbed That's What I'm Talking About. The film follows a group of college freshmen as they work their way through the first year of college life and try to make the baseball team. As of now, the film still has no title, although IMDb currently has it listed as... Read More »

While Richard Linklater has always bounced back and forth between studio projects and indie movies, you have to go back to 2005's "Bad News Bears" to find his last full-fledged picture for a major Hollywood outlet (not counting indie arms). However, in the wake of the success of "Boyhood," it is interesting to see how the studios are coming back to Linklater. Paramount is distributing this next movie, which was just dated for spring 2016, and now Sony is eyeballing the filmmaker. Deadline reports that Linklater is the frontrunner to direct "The Rosie Project" starring Jennifer Lawrence. Phil Lord and Chris Miller were originally attached before they got too busy conquering Hollywood, and I have to say, this seems a little safe and dull for Linklater. Based on Graeme Simsion's bestselling book, with a script by Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber ("The Spectacular Now," "The Fault In Our »

The movie, based on the Graeme Simsion novel, centers on a socially awkward genetics professor who devises a science-based survey to find the perfect mate — only to see those theories splintered when he meets the spontaneous Rosie Jarman (played by Lawrence), who possesses the opposite qualities.
Scott Neustadter and Michael Weber, who teamed on “(500) Days of Summer,” have revised Simsion’s adaptation of the novel. “The Lego Movie” co-directors Phil Lord and Christopher Miller were initially interested, but have opted to take on Disney’s Han Solo “Star Wars” standalone movie.
Paramount announced Monday that it will release Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About »

Discussions are just getting under way, but Linklater’s schedule is currently open and the studio has been looking to attract a big name for the gig ever since The Lego Movie directors Phil Lord and Chris Miller left the project for a Star Wars spinoff focusing on a young Han Solo.
The adaptation of Graeme Simison’s novel centers on a genetics professor who’s more adept at navigating complex scientific data collections than his social life. When he comes up with a scientific survey designed to find him his perfect mate, the professor believes he’s sidestepped the risks that come with dating. His world gets shaken up, however, when he falls hard for a woman named Rosie »

Richard Linklater has already completed his follow-up to Boyhood — when your last feature took over a decade to make, pretty much any other turnaround seems quick. The movie has been called That’s What I’m Talking About, and also referred to as Everybody Wants Some, but the current status pegs it as Untitled Richard Linklater […]

Exclusive: Boyhood helmer Richard Linklater is the frontrunner for the job of directing Jennifer Lawrence in The Rosie Project, I hear. That is the Sony Pictures adaptation of the Graeme Simison novel that Phil Lord & Christopher Miller just exited to helm the young Han Solo Star Wars movie. The film's being produced by Matt Tolmach and Michael Costigan. Scott Neustadter & Michael Weber wrote the script. The book focuses on a genetics professor with limited social skills… »
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. »

Paramount Pictures has set a release date for Richard Linklater’s follow-up to his Oscar-nominated Boyhood. The baseball comedy, formerly titled That’s What I’m Talking About, will bow on April 15, 2016. That’s the date formerly held by Jon Lucas and Scott Moore’s R-rated comedy Bad Moms, which now had been undated following the departures last month of star Leslie Mann and producer Judd Apatow. Bad Moms, from The Hangover team, was to star Mann as an overworked and… »
Paramount has set Richard Linklater’s baseball comedy — formerly titled “That’s What I’m Talking About” — for an April 15 release.
The studio also moved its untitled comedy, which had been starring Leslie Mann, out of that release slot with no new date set.
Megan Ellison is producing the baseball movie along with Sean Daniel, Linklater, Sandra Adair, John Sloss and Ginger Sledge. Daniel and the late Jim Jacks partnered with Linklater on his breakout 1993 teen comedy “Dazed and Confused.”
The pic is the first film for Linklater following his Oscar-nominated family drama “Boyhood.”
Blake Jenner stars as a new pitcher on a highly ranked college baseball team that also parties extensively. Tyler Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell, Ryan Guzman, Zoey Deutch, Will Brittain and Glen Powell also star.
The movie — set in the 198os in Texas — has also been informally titled “Everybody Wants Some.” It’s Linklater’s second baseball comedy »

Richard Linklater's Boyhood follow-up, a film being referred to as Everybody Wants Some has a release date and it's not coming in 2015. Previously known as That's What I'm Talking About, but most affectionately known as the "spiritual sequel" to Linklater's classic (yes, classic) Dazed and Confused, Paramount has now set an April 15, 2016 release date for the flick, perhaps just long enough to give them time to settle on a name, because I don't think Everybody Wants Some is going to fly with the marketing department. Hell, the trailer for the upcoming We Are Your Friends trailer got laughs when the title popped up at a recent screening of mine. As for the film, it largely features lesser-knowns in its cast and takes place in the 1980s, following an incoming college freshman who experiences his first weekend in college as a pitcher on the school's baseball team, as he and »

That's right. Richard Linklater's sort-of sequel to "Dazed and Confused" won't hit theaters until April 15, 2016. Rumors abound that the film's title, formerly "That's What I'm Talking About," is now "Everybody Wants Some" — like the Van Halen track. But Paramount Pictures lists the movie on Rentrak as untitled. That means a Winter 2016 festival berth—where "Boyhood" and "Before Midnight" were slotted in the past, at Sundance and Berlin—could be in the cards, but the film will not be a Fall festival contender as we had hoped. Linklater, whose "Boyhood" won an Oscar for Patricia Arquette as Supporting Actress win, is also in talks to direct Jennifer Lawrence in Sony's "Rosie Project," reports Deadline.

From producer Annapurna and distributor Paramount, Linklater's untitled film is about college baseball players in the 1980s and stars Blake Jenner, »
