The forthcoming Richard Linklater adaptation of Maria Semple’s sensational 2012 novel Where’d You Go, Bernadette has finally cast a key role. Newcomer Emma Nelson will play Bee, Bernadette’s 15-year-old daughter who narrates the book, and whose investigation into her mother’s disappearance acts as a framing device for the story.
This will be Nelson’s first film role. The teen actor will star alongside heavy-hitters Cate Blanchett (as Bernadette), Billy Crudup (as Bernadette’s husband, Elgie), Laurence Fishburne, Kristen Wiig and Judy Greer. The Annapurna Pictures-backed film, directed by School of Rock and Boyhood helmer Linklater, follows a script by Linklater, Holly Gent, Vincent Palmo Jr., Michael H. Weber and Scott Neustadter.
