Richard Linklater’s Baseball Film Gets 2016 Release Date

Paramount has a firm date set for Richard Linklater’s Boyhood follow up.

Deadline has reported the film will drop April 15, 2016, originally up against the Judd Apatow-produced Bad Moms, which has since been moved. Originally titled That’s What I’m Talking About, the name will change before the release next April.

Richard Linklater’s story, set in the 80s, will follow a college freshman (Blake Jenner) during his first weeks of college as a pitcher for the baseball team. Linklater has called the film a “spiritual sequel” to both Dazed and Confused and, somehow, Boyhood.
