‘Dazed and Confused’ sequel may start production this fall

That’s what Richard Linklater announced in a Reddit AMA on Wednesday. He wants to start production on the sequel, rumored to be titled “That’s What I’m Talking About” this fall.


It might be just a pipe dream, but who knows? I wonder if he plans to use people from the original cast– particularly Adam Goldberg who is kind of the dreamiest ever and should probably be my boyfriend.

Wiggins is now a tech and culture writer, and runs a blog called “It’s Not For Everyone“:


Hinojosa quit acting back in the day to become an anti-war activist:
