Richard Linklater to write and direct a movie about Bill Hicks

Controversial legendary comedian Bill Hicks will soon be immortalised in a movie by Oscar-nominated filmmaker Richard Linklater. Hicks roamed deeply into the edges of satirical dark comedy where he commentated on social issues, religion, politics, and philosophy and opened a door for many to follow. Sadly Hicks passed away in 1994 at the age of 32 years old after battling pancreatic cancer and never got to see the long-term impact his work had.

Collider have revealed that Linklater has signed on to develop, write and direct an untitled film based on Hicks life for Focus Features. Linklater stated:

“There’s not quite any others like him. They don’t speak in the same voice. You’d think people would take that torch and go with it, but it’s a rare combination of that kind of intelligence, mysticism, political, you know… his politics, his angle, it’s pretty unique, I go through my life all the time… everything that’s going on in our culture, I always think, what would Bill Hicks be doing? You just miss him.”
