“Before Sunrise” helmer’s “Dazed and Confused”comedy follow up in works

PanARMENIAN.Net - Dazed and Confused director Richard Linklater has revealed that he is working on a follow up to the 1993 coming-of-age comedy, Digital Spy said.

The original movie featured a large ensemble cast including Matthew McConaughey, Renée Zellweger, Ben Affleck, Milla Jovovich and Parker Posey.

Linklater announced his plans for the follow-up on Thursday (May 23) during a Reddit chat.

He described the forthcoming project to be more of a "spiritual sequel" and said that he does not plan to use the same characters.

Instead, Linklater said that he will produce a coming-of-age story that is more of a "college comedy", rather than taking the high school setting of the original.

He added that the Dazed and Confused follow-up will also feature "a big ensemble".

The Before Midnight director hopes to start production on the film sometime this fall.
