Richard Linklater will direct Cate Blanchett in a film version of Maria Semple's novel Where'd You Go, Bernadette. Indiewire reported that filming is set to begin this summer on the project Linklater originally joined in the adaptation two years ago, but there had been no news about the project since then.
Screenwriters Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber (The Spectacular Now, The Fault in Our Stars) "wrote the original script, though Linklater probably made some touch ups," Indiewire noted. Megan Ellison will produce the film through Annapurna Pictures. "No additional cast members have been announced, though expect the ball to get rolling quickly as summer approaches."
