Richard Linklater exits 'Mr. Limpet' remake to cook up 'Dazed and Confused' sort-of-sequel
Fresh off of the success of "Boyhood," prolific director Richard Linklater is switching gears again.
Linklater has exited the long-gestating remake of the 1964 Don Knotts fantasy-comedy "The Incredible Mr. Limpet" due to scheduling conflicts, and Warner Bros. is already searching for a replacement, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The live action/animated "Limpet" is based on the novel by Theodore Pratt about Henry Limpet, a man who is transformed into a talking fish who then helps the U.S. Navy in WWII.
The report goes on to surmise that Linklater will instead focus on "That's What I'm Talking About," a 1980s college comedy said to be a spiritual sequel to his 1970s high school cult classic "Dazed & Confused."
Meanwhile, Linklater ia also attached to "Larry's Kidney," with Will Ferrell and Zach Galifianakis set to star.
