‘Merrily We Roll Along’ Will Be Another Lengthy Richard Linklater Feature Film
  |  @   |  

Richard Linklater‘s Boyhood was an ambitious filmmaking project that took 12 years to complete. In it, audiences saw the life of one person, played by the same actor, through various stages of his life. Now, he is going to up that with a film adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along, based on the 1934 play of the same name by George S. Kaufman and Moss Hart.

According to new reports, the film adaptation will reportedly take 20 years to complete. An interesting take as it might be a reflection of the current state of the entertainment industry and how things could change for the better (or worse) when the film is completed and is released. More on who will appear in the film below.

Upon arriving, he is immediately hazed by McReynolds (Tyler Hoechlin), the team’s mustachioed heavy hitter who hates pitchers (especially lefties like Jake).
