Everybody Wants Some Connects With Other Richard Linklater Films


Richard Linklater

Everybody Wants Some follows a group of friends navigating their way through their first weekend of independent university life in the 1980s. But the film is also a sort of follow-up to Boyhood, picking up where that movie ends. 

Linklater picked a relatively unknown group of actors to star in the film

Linklater admits to both of those facts. "At the very beginning of Boyhood I felt the character would be going to college, but I had no idea," Linklater says. "And then here I had this script written about halfway through Boyhood that's about that first weekend of college. So they are kind of related. They're cousins. And this one sort of picks up right after that one ends."

Patricia Arquette Paid Dog Walker More Than She Received For 'Boyhood'


Patricia Arquette Richard Linklater

Boyhood is the outstanding movie of the year and, barring a Crash style upset, it will be crowned Best Picture at the Academy Awards on February 27. Still, if there's something more absolute than Richard Linklater's film winning the evening's biggest award, it is Patricia Arquette winning Best Supporting Actress.

With respect to her fellow actresses, Arquette has nothing to beat. In a year of outstanding lead performances (Amy Adams, Julianne Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Felicity Jones), Arquette's nearest competition will likely come in the form of Emma Stone for Birdman, Keira Knightley for The Imitation Game and Jessica Chastain for A Most Violent Year.

We've had our fingers crossed for a sequel to Richard Linklater's musical movie since it was announced as 'School of Rock 2: America Rocks' back in 2008, but then it started to look like we weren't going to see rock teacher Dewey Finn return to our screens after all. Never fear though, as now the original story is coming to Broadway towards the end of 2015 with previews kicking off in November.
