Richard Linklater’s ‘Everybody Wants Some’ Kicking Off SXSW 2016

Richard Linklater’s “spiritual sequel” to Dazed and Confused and Boyhood, Everybody Wants Some, has been slated to kick off the 2016 South by Southwest Festival in Austin.

The 23rd SXSW Festival gets going on March 11 in Central Texas, and Linklater’s film is, so far, the only one securing a spot. Here is a quick overview of the film from the report in Variety:

“Everybody Wants Some” follows a group of college baseball players in ’80s Texas as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood. The film stars Blake Jenner, Ryan Guzman (who was a college baseball pitcher), Tyler Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell, Glen Powell, Will Brittain and Zoey Deutch.

Everybody Wants Some has gone though a few changes over the past few months. Once it became clear it would be Linklater’s follow up to his Oscar-nominated Boyhood, the film changed from its original title, That’s What I’m Talking About, to the current title. The theatrical release date following its premiere at SXSW is April 15.
