Boyhood’s Richard Linklater May Adapt Where’d You Go, Bernadette

Although Boyhood lost out to Birdman at the Oscars, director Richard Linklater is a hot name in Hollywood again and film fans are waiting to see what he does next. The Hollywood Reporter is reporting that he may be going from Boyhood to womanhood and adapting Maria Semple’s best-selling Where’d You Go, Bernadette:

Semple’s novel, which was adapted for Annaupurna by Fault in Our Stars writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, centers on an agoraphobic architect and mother named Bernadette Branch who goes missing prior to a family trip to Antarctica. The book is narrated by her 15-year-old daughter Bee Branch.

The comedic novel is written in a series of emails, memos, bills, and other documents. Linklater is currently in talks to direct but hasn’t officially taken over the project.
