Richard Linklater is certainly no stranger to mainstream fare. "School Of Rock," "Bad News Bears" and "The Newton Boys" were journeys into major studio filmmaking (and let's not forget, "Dazed & Confused" was also a major studio project for Universal made at a time when the majors were toying with indie talent) but none of those are as big as what the helmer is circling right now.

Guess The Whole Giving-Away-All-Your-Money-And-Living-In-A-Trailer Thing Didn't Quite StickSo we thought Tom Shadyac was done with Hollywood? The director of “The Nutty Professor,” “Liar Liar” and “Bruce Almighty” is just coming out of an odd few years following his last film, “Evan Almighty." The director has sold a 17,000-square-foot mansion in Pasadena, given away most of his money and possessions, now lives in a trailer park by choice and is currently hawking a new documentary called "I Am." The documentary finds Shadyac talking to folks like Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Howard Zinn and Noam Chomsky trying to figure out why mankind is more often than not competitive rather than empathetic.
