‘Richard Linklater is set to return in a big way next year with none other than Cate Blanchett. The two have teamed up for an adaptation of Maria Semple’s 2012 novel “Where’d You, Bernadette.” Both Linklater and Blanchett have been attached to the film since November 2015, which makes next year’s release from Annapurna Pictures a long time coming for the mystery comedy.
“Where’d You Go, Bernadette” stars Blanchett as an agoraphobic architect who goes missing, leaving her 15-year-old daughter with no choice but to journey out and investigate her disappearance. Emma Nelson is starring as the daughter, Bee, while the supporting cast also includes Billy Crudup, Kristen Wiig, Judy Greer, James Urbaniak, and Troian Bellisario. Linklater punched up the script, originally written by “The Spectacular Now” and “The Disaster Artist” Oscar nominees Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter.
Annapurna Pictures will release “Where’d You Go, Bernadette” in theaters March 22, 2019. ‘
