Richard Linklater has been talking about a “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused for almost as long as we can remember but now it sounds like there’s been actually development on the production. With a title that sounds like something Wooderson came up with himself, That’s What I’m Talking About is reportedly “set in 1980 – a college freshman moves into the baseball house at his college and experiences a fraternity like lifestyle with his hard partying teammates.”
I’m told he has offered the three leads to these actors: Glee’s Blake Jenner, Teen Wolf’s Tyler Hoechlin, and 22 Jump Street’s Wyatt Russell. [Deadline]
Wyatt Russell in particular is the most Richard Linklater-character looking dude ever to live life outside of one. I’ve never seen the other two act, but I hope at least one of them spends half the movie grabbing the bridge of his nose, just for old times’ sake.
