All right, all right, all right. A Dazed and Confused sequel might finally be happening. CHUD received an email from someone who attended a screening of Dazed and Confused in Austin, TX and at the Q&A session afterwards, director Richard Linklater laid out his plans for a sequel.
The movie, which he is shooting in and around Austin this summer, will be about the first weekend of college in 1980. So while thematically it'll bookend Dazed, it won't have any of the same characters (which makes sense, as all of the actors are decades older and would look weird pretending it's just four years later).
It wasn't clear who was starring in this new film, but we'll be sure to update you with any details regarding this sequel as soon as more information comes in.
