To make his 2014 movie Boyhood a actuality, director Richard Linklater periodically shot actors Patricia Arquette, Ellar Coltrane, Lorelei Linklater and Ethan Hawke over the course of 12 years. The finish outcome garnered loads of crucial acclaim, together with a number of Academy Award nominations and an Oscar statue for Arquette. Since then, Linklater has busied himself with a lot smaller, much less time-consuming fare, however in line with a brand new report, it appears he’s about to embark on yet one more size challenge.
According to Collider, Broadway star Ben Platt and Booksmart breakout Beanie Feldstein will co-star in Linklater’s brewing adaptation of Stephen Sondheim’s musical Merrily We Roll Along, the story of which takes place over 20 years. The filmmaker’s longtime collaborator, Ginger Sledge, is producing the challenge with him. What’s extra, Collider’s report can also be claiming that sources aware of the challenge are saying that Jason Blum’s Blumhouse banner is getting concerned.
The story follows the lifetime of Broadway composer turned Hollywood star Franklin Shepard, who abandons his beginnings in New York for fame on the west coast. This contains abandoning his associates, amongst them the theater critic Mary Flynn. Platt will play Shepard and Feldstein is anticipated to painting Flynn. Interestingly, whereas Boyhood was each shot and edited chronologically, Merrily We Roll Along‘s story actually takes place in reverse. So, if and when this 20-year project is successfully completed, it will actually begin with Platt and Feldstein’s older selves and journey again in time.
