Watch the first trailer for Dazed and Confused's spiritual successor, Everybody Wants Some

Dazed and Confused writer/director Richard Linklater has long insisted that he had a “spiritual successor” to the popular 1993 film in the works, and now the first trailer for that movie — titled Everybody Wants Some — has finally been released.

Borrowing its title from Van Halen’s third studio album, “Women and Children First,” Everybody Wants Some follows a group of college baseball players at a Texas school as they “navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood.”

Linklater has indicated that Everybody Wants Some is a successor to both Dazed and Confused and his Oscar-nominated 2014 film Boyhood.  Like those predecessors, the film follows a young man who arrives at college and finds himself surrounded by new people at similar points in their lives, and meets a girl while balancing all of these new responsibilities and freedoms.

The ensemble cast includes Will Brittain (A Teacher), Zoey Deutch (Vampire Academy), Ryan Anthony Guzman (Step Up All In), Tyler Hoechlin (Road to Perdition), Blake Jenner (Glee), Glen Powell (The Dark Knight Rises), and Wyatt Russell (22 Jump Street). Much like Dazed and Confused and Boyhood, the movie was filmed and set in Texas, a staple of Linklater’s projects.

In a December 2014 interview with CreativeScreenwriting.com, Linklater said Everybody Wants Some “begins right where Boyhood ends, with a guy showing up at college and meeting his new roommates and a girl.”

The film is the latest project for Linklater, who has now been nominated for five Academy Awards as both a writer and director. Boyhood earned three Oscar nominations in 2014, and his 2004 film Before Sunset earned him his first screenwriting Oscar nomination. That film’s 2013 sequel Before Midnight earned him his second nomination.

Everybody Wants Some is scheduled to premiere as the Opening Night film for the 2016 South by Southwest Film Festival in Austin, Texas. The film will be released wide in theaters April 15, 2016.
