Kat Dennings, Richard Linklater near deal to lens Obama-related 'Liars'

Posted on

The dude who gave us Dazed and Confused could soon be set to send Kat Dennings on a wild road trip to the White House (sort of). Richard Linklater, the indie auteur behind such acclaimed slacker-hipster film fare as School of Rock and Before Sunrise, is in final talks to make the movie Liars (A-E) for the good folks at Miramax, according to Variety. The comedy will reportedly co-star the doe-eyed Dennings –hot off her successful spin in the rom-com Nick and Nora’s Infinite Playlist – as the best friend of a girl forced to recover a series of lost items from several ex-boyfriends … while the two ladies are traveling to see President Obama’s inauguration. Linklater’s most recent cinematic venture, Me and Orson Welles, scored high marks at the 2008 Toronto Film Festival.
