Last we knew, Richard Linklater‘s next film, described as a spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused, was going to be called That’s What I’m Talking About and would take place in the world of college life in the 1980s. But that information is now only partly true, as the film has received a new title that sounds a bit more in line with what I expect the film to explore.
“You show up at college and you’re listening to Van Halen, but you go to discos to chase women, but then you end up at a punk club or a country bar because Urban Cowboy was big at that time,” Linklater told Marc Maron earlier this year on the WTF Podcast (via The Film Stage).
The Van Halen note is where emphasis should be placed, as Linklater’s film has recently been retitled Everybody Wants Some, according to The Film Stage. The title is based on the Van Halen song of the same name.
In addition to its fancy new title, Everybody Wants Some has received a (very brief) updated synopsis, which reads:
It’s not unfair to assume Van Halen’s “Everybody Wants Some” (listen below) will play some role in the film beyond inspiring its title, and the film’s soundtrack is said to include other popular music from the 1980s including songs by Talking Heads, Blondie, Pat Benatar, Devo and more.
