From Spielberg to Scorsese to Tarantino and more
7. "That's What I'm Talking About"
Release date: TBD
Director: Richard Linklater
Expected debut: Toronto Film Festival 2015
Cause for excitement: The beauty of shooting a movie over 12 years means there’s plenty of time to work on other projects in the off hours. Linklater should have sat back and enjoyed the "Boyhood" Oscar season. Instead, he spent the Fall shooting a spiritual successor to "Dazed and Confused," a young adult drama focused on college, baseball, and partying. On a roll after his Best Picture contender and 2013’s "Before Midnight," pretty much any slice of life Linklater serves up is one worth a year’s precious time.
