Richard Linklater’s New Comedy “Everybody Wants Some” to Open SXSW

(via Deadline)

While there was the Gamergate influenced panel debacle, at least SXSW is kicking off the festivities with something big.

Everybody Wants Some, which has been touted as a spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, will premiere at the very opening of SXSW. Linklater is going back to the 80s in, fittingly for the festival, Austin, TX and following a college baseball team dealing with growing up. 

If ever there’s a director that could make such a premise something amazing, it’ll be Linklater. If you want to catch the premiere at SXSW, free up your March
