Richard Linklater claims he “didn’t make any money” from Dazed and Confused.


Richard Linklater has said he “didn’t make any money” from it. Dazed and confused.

The director’s 1993 film launched the careers of Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey and Parker Posey. It became a cult classic.

link later (Before sunrise, childhood, School of Rock) said that despite the film’s success, he “didn’t make any money from it.”

When asked how that was possible, he said The daily beast: “I don’t know. Ask universal! Hollywood Accounting.”

He also claimed that he asked Universal for a “slice” of the profits from the film’s soundtrack since he chose all of the songs for the film.

Linklater said his application was denied because it was his “first film”.

“Everyone has this story of how they got screwed with their first project. That movie was an indie hit,” he said.

“It’s made more than it cost in the theater and over the years it’s been everywhere.”

Though unhappy with his personal financial gains from the film, Linklater said he was still grateful he was able to make a film that most studios today “would not give the green light” to.

“Here I am complaining, but they greenlit the film and they wouldn’t greenlight the film today,” he said. “Casting by strangers? Historical film, drive around when not much is happening? A movie from Sundance?

“I don’t think there’s a pitch for this film today, so I sit here very, very blessed that I came at a time when the studios were going, hey, we’re going to do this and that and then throw in a little change and here to these guys. I’m still grateful that I made the film the way I wanted it to be.”
