Director Richard Linklater's Upcoming Obama-Inspired Road Trip Comedy! 


Richard Linklater, the fantastic director who gave us "Dazed and Confused," "Slacker," "Before Sunrise," and "Before Sunset" films among others, is working on a road-trip comedy inspired by President Barack Obama's election victory.

The film is called "Liars (A-E)" from scriptwriter Emma Forrest. Scott Rudin is producing for Miramax.

Rebecca Hall ("Frost/Nixon," "Vicky Cristina Barcelona") is in talks to play a woman who's been dumped by her rocker fiancé on the eve of the president's victorious election.

So what does she do? She takes a road trip with her best friend (played by Kat Dennings) to Obama's inauguration. And along the way, she visits various ex-boyfriends to retrieve lost items.

Sounds intriguing!
