LOS ANGELES - Pioneering director Richard Linklater, known for his wildly ambitious projects, has announced that his latest movie will be filmed over a 20-year span.

He will go one step further with his adaptation of Stephen Sondheim's musical Merrily We Roll Along, which tells the story of a Broadway composer who moves to Hollywood to produce movies.

A statement from studio Blumhouse said principal photography has been completed for the"first segment of the film".
