Home Movies Soundtrack to New Richard Linklater Film An 80s Greatest Hits of Pop...

Richard Linklater’s “Boyhood” follow up sounds like it will be a Wonder Years for the 80s. The soundtrack is full of AM radio pop gems from groups including The Knack, Blondie, and Van Halen. “Everybody Wants Some” opens April 1st with a cast that includes mostly unknowns: Will Brittain, Zoey Deutch, Ryan Guzman, Tyler Hoechlin, Blake Jenner, J. Quinton Johnson, Glen Powell and Wyatt Russell. Linklater calls it a “spiritual sequel” to his early hit “Dazed and Confused.” That movie also had a bunch of unknowns. One of them became Ben Affleck. And here’s a little trivia: Viola Davis’s real life husband, Julius Tennon, played a teacher in “Dazed and Confused.” Also, Renee Zellweger pre-Jerry Maguire had an uncredited spot.
