Director Richard Linklater has been in the news lately with his Oscar nomination for ‘Boyhood‘, the film that took 12 years to film, before that his name was always hand-in-hand with ‘Dazed and Confused‘ that stunning peek into the last day of school in the 70’s and made names out of Matthew McConaughey and Ben Affleck.

Richard-Linklater-2

It looks like Linklater has determined his next project, directing the adaptation of Maria Semple’s novel, ‘Where’d You Go, Bernadette?’ The contracts haven’t been signed, yet, but there is a lot of interest. Megan Ellison’s Annapurna Pictures will be financing the pic while Ellison joins Nina Jacobson as producer.

Bernadette Fox is notorious. To her Microsoft-guru husband, she’s a fearlessly opinionated partner; to fellow private-school mothers in Seattle, she’s a disgrace; to design mavens, she’s a revolutionary architect, and to 15-year-old Bee, she is a best friend and, simply, Mom. Then Bernadette disappears. It began when Bee aced her report card and claimed her promised reward: a family trip to Antarctica. But Bernadette’s intensifying allergy to Seattle—and people in general—has made her so agoraphobic that a virtual assistant in India now runs her most basic errands. A trip to the end of the earth is problematic. To find her mother, Bee compiles email messages, official documents, secret correspondence—creating a compulsively readable and touching novel about misplaced genius and a mother and daughter’s role in an absurd world.

The book is fantastic and I know Linklater will do it justice. Hope this one follows through, I’m excited for it!
