Richard Linklater may direct a movie adaptation of Maria Semple’s bestseller “Where’d You Go, Bernadette.”

The 2012 book centers on Bernadette Fox and her daughter, Bee. When Bernadette vanishes before a family trip to Antarctica, Bee tries to discover what happened.

Linklater is in talks to take on the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
