Richard Linklater hopes to start shooting the "spiritual sequel" to his film Dazed and Confused this fall, the director confirmed during an Ask Me Anything session on Reddit yesterday. Describing the film as "a college comedy," Linklater added, "I feel like mixing it up with a big ensemble."

As The A.V. Club points out, Linklater's been talking about the Dazed and Confused sequel for quite some time now, with the film almost going into production under the title That's What I'm Talking About. Linklater said back in 2010 that while he had financing in place for the film, he was still searching for a distributor.

The movie will reportedly take place over the course of a weekend at a college in 1980, and while it attempts to capture the style and feel of Dazed and Confused, Linklater has said that none of the characters from the original will reappear.

Linklater recently released Before Midnight, the third installment in the ongoing love story of Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, respectively), which he began in 1995's Before Sunrise.
