Boyhood Getting a Sequel?

After a disappointing showing at the Academy Awards for Boyhood, there is some news coming out that director Richard Linklater is contemplating the possibility of making a sequel. Linklater is already working on his project titled That’s What I’m Talking About, which is a “spiritual sequel” to both Boyhood and Dazed and Confused; but the director has an idea about creating another film that would return us to the life of Mason to experience the character through his 20’s which are the years that really shape a person into who they become for life.

Linklater is always thinking up amazing ideas like Boyhood and knows how to depict time very well. The director says that the sequel would probably be more accelerated, and not shot over the course of ten years or so like the first one.

Part of me likes the idea of seeing what comes next for Mason; I really loved watching the character grow into an adult and definitely wouldn’t mind seeing how he experiences college and the real world afterwards; however, another part of me wants Boyhood to be left alone because it’s a wonderful tale as is and ends in a way that allows each viewer to decide on their own what happens to Mason. Either way, this is interesting news to hear from Linklater, so we’ll see if the idea ever turns into more than that.
