To steal a line from The Most Interesting Man in the World, Richard Linklater doesn’t always make sequels, but when he does, he makes some of the most vital sequels a film lover could ask for. One of those, Before Midnight, is about to slide into theaters this weekend with with almost unanimously positive reviews. Not bad for the second sequel to a movie that few thought needed a sequel in the first place.
Now the director reveals that he’s making plans to shoot a “spiritual sequel” to another of his hits, Dazed and Confused, this fall. Additionally, he reveals that Growing Up — his 12-year-long effort about childhood and adolescence — could hit theaters as soon as 2014. The next couple of years are gonna be a pretty sweet time for Linklater fans. Hit the jump to read his comments.
