Linklater to go home to East Texas for next film
The word is Richard Linklater's next film is called Bernie and Jack Black is set to star. Here's how he described the film during a recent talk in NYC (My sources say he hopes to shoot it in the fall using a lot of non-actors from East Texas):
"It's a film I wrote about ten years ago," he noted. "[And it's] set in a little town of Huntsville, East Texas, kind of a little black comedy. It's my Fargo in East Texas, where I group up, so it's crazy local with fifty characters. It's about a funeral home assistant who befriends this old lady. It's kind of a true crime story."
