Director nearing deal for film

Richard Linklater (“School of Rock”) is nearing a deal to direct “Liars (A-E)” for Scott Rudin and Miramax.

Project, penned by Emma Forrest, is a romantic comedy about a woman who, on the way to President Obama’s inauguration, retrieves lost items from her ex-boyfriends.

Kat Dennings is set to play the woman’s pal.

Linklater’s most recent directorial effort is “Me and Orson Welles,” which bowed at the Toronto Film Festival last year.
