Here’s a sequel you probably didn’t expect to read about anytime soon, even though we first heard about this sequel a decade ago. In 2006, Richard Linklater revealed he wrote an adaption of Darryl Ponicsan‘s Last Flag Flying — a sequel to The Last Detail, which director Hal Ashby and screenwriter Robert Towne adapted into an incredible film in 1973. Linklater’s goal was to bring most of the original cast back, but Randy Quaid would only return if Jack Nicholson did, and unfortunately Otis Young passed away in 2001.
So Linklater is now instead now making a “sort of” sequel, possibly starring Bryan Cranston, Steve Carell, and Laurence Fishburne. Below, learn more about The Last Detail sequel.
