Boyhood

On the Q&A podcast, writer-director Richard Linklater stated when people would ask about a sequel to Boyhood  in 2014 he responded, “Absolutely not.” The director now says “I wake up in the morning thinking, ‘the 20s are pretty formative, you know?’ That’s where you really become who you’re going to be. It’s one thing to grow up and go to college, but it’s another thing to… So, I will admit my mind has drifted towards [a sequel].”

The 12-year production cycle will probably not be repeated for a sequel. Although not confirmed, based on Linklater’s Before Sunrise trilogy and its gap of 9-years between installments, a followup to Boyhood may become a reality in the distant future.
