According to The Hollywood Reporter, Boyhood director Richard Linklater is in talks to direct Maria Semple’s 2013 best seller Where’d You Go Bernadette for Annapurna Pictures. The book has already been adapted by The Faults in Our Stars writers Scott Neustadter and Michael H. Weber, and hopefully it won’t take anyone on this team 12 years to produce. (Turns out, even that much effort won’t win you the Oscar!)
