There's a lot more to this article, so click the link above for the scoop.
I always wondered what it would be like to shoot a movie with an actor as a child, then shoot the rest of the movie either as they grew up or when they were an adult (since movies usually have to have separate actors for the child and adult versions of the same character). I guess this is the closest thing.
Interesting. They better hope the child can act when he's older.
That is interesting. Kinda like The Truman Show
Richard Linklater is my god. Always coming up with one interesting, innovative idea after another, and I can't wait to see how this idea of his turns out.
This reminds me of the British 7-up series, which followed a group of kids every seven years, starting in the 1960s. The latest release, 49-up (?), came out a few years ago.
Very interesting. Guess we'll be watching this in 2015
I am personally grateful for Richard Linklater. It is his innovations and capabilities which give so much energy and vibrance to the Independent movement. He is the "star" of the independent circuit, and for good reason.
Not to be too morbid or anything but what happens if the kid dies a few years from now or something?
Then Linklater ends up with a short film.
I actually came up with this movie idea, to show the growth of a person from childhood to adulthood, years ago after realizing that I always liked the child actor more than the teenager/young adult of the same character in movies.
Bleh, i don't find this interesting
Well. Um, thanks for...participating...
I'm sorry but that was friggin funny.
I love Linklater, I appreciate the fact he is trying to do something different and innovative. It will certainly be an interesting result. This guy's mind is getting better as the years progress
Didn't Kubrick have a similar idea at one point?
What if the kid turns out to be an ugly bastard, or a filthy junkie, or a real degenarate douchebag, or a huge star demanding huge money, or kills someone, or Linklater finds that he thinks the actor has become a massive asshole?
Still could make it interesting
Lars Von Trier can be really fucked up...anyone see Zentropa?
Hoop Dreams did the same sorta thing... following the lives of 2 kids for 5 years.
I wouldn't consider this innovative... but it's interesting nontheless.
