Hmmm, how hard it is to know how much of a story to give away before it's even become a movie... Okay, this paragraph's safe, next one's marginally suspect. Deal? Deal. Anyway, after having two projects already bottom out on him, Richard Linklater's truckin' ahead on a vehicle for his School of Rock star, Jack Black, based on a true story and set in Linklater's home state. Bernie takes its name after the "chubby-cheeked" funeral director (Black, of course) who befriended a local widow (Shirley MacLaine's signed on) in a small Texas town.

Potential spoilers for a movie you won't see until next year below, although let's face it, the trailer will probably tell all:

Ready?

Then the elderly widow disappears for the better part of a year before being found at the bottom of her own freezer, and when Bernie admits to having committed the murder, the town seems to take his side.

All clear!

From the sound of things, Black and MacLaine have both been ideally cast, and it'll be nice to see if Linklater can turn this into his own so-called Fargo after all.
