Releasing nationally on Friday 3rd June 2016, Everybody Wants Some!! is a quirky comedy starring newcomer Blake Jenner. Set in Texas in the 80’s, Everybody Wants Some!! opens with college freshman Jake (Jenner), arriving at his new residence that he will be sharing with other members of his fellow Southeast Texas Cherokees College baseball team.
Over the next 72 hours you encounter a variety of characters as all the members of the team get to know each other, bond and attempt to outdo one another in every department- from baseball to handball, practical jokes and ‘scoring chics’, no sport is off limits for these spirited young men!
- Everybody Wants Some!! was written and directed by Richard Linklater who also directed the epic, Boyhood a directing feat, filmed with the same cast over a series of years
- According to Linklater, the film is a continuation of Boyhood in terms of beginning right where Boyhood ends with a guy showing up at college and meeting his new roommates and a girl
- Parts of filming were done at Texas State University in San Marcos, TX and some scenes were shot in the downtown area
- The previous title (That’s What I’m Talking About) was a dialogue line from Linklater’s ‘Dazed and Confused’ (1993), as well as a frequently quoted line in this film.
With a stellar soundtrack and side-splitting comedy, Everybody Wants Some!! is a delightful journey about young men attempting to navigate their new-found freedom as adults and balance friendship, romance and their passion for baseball.
