Richard Linklater’s ‘Everybody Wants Some’ Gets April 1 Release

Paramount has moved the opening of Richard Linklater’s dramedy “Everybody Wants Some” forward two weeks to April 1 in limited release.

The studio will expand the film over the following two weekends. It also moved back its horror thriller “Rings” off April 1 to the pre-Halloween weekend of Oct. 28.

“Everybody Wants Some” will open the SXSW Film Festival on March 11. The film follows a group of college baseball players in ’80s Texas as they navigate their way through the freedoms and responsibilities of unsupervised adulthood and stars Blake Jenner, Ryan Guzman (who was a college baseball pitcher), Tyler Hoechlin, Wyatt Russell, Glen Powell, Will Brittain and Zoey Deutch.

The launch date will coincide with the April 3 opening of the Major League Baseball season.

The project, which takes its title from a popular 1980 song of the same name by Van Halen, has been considered the follow-up to Linklater’s breakthrough 1993 film “Dazed and Confused.” It’s the first title from Linklater following 2014’s “Boyhood,” which grossed over $44 million worldwide on a $4 million budget.

Walter Parkes and Laurie MacDonald are producing “Rings,” which will again feature a deadly videotape. Italian actress Matilda Lutz will star, and F. Javier Gutierrez will direct.

“Rings” is the third film in “The Ring” franchise, which launched in 2002. It’s also the third date for “Rings,” which was originally set to open Nov. 13, then moved to April 1.
