Richard Linklater to Direct Adaptation of 'Merrily We Roll Along' Over Next 20 Years


  • Director Richard Linklater (Boyhood) is set to direct an adaptation of the Stephen Sondheim musical Merrily We Roll Along.

  • The adaptation will star Beanie Feldstein and Ben Platt, and filming will take place over the next twenty years.

  • Ginger Sledge is producing, with Blumhouse founder Jason Blum set to be involved as well.

  • The story follows a Broadway composer who leaves New York to produce movies in Los Angeles. The musical begins at the height of his fame, moving backward in time to show how he and his friend, a theater critic, arrived where they are in life today.
