The popular 2012 comedic novel “Where'd You Go, Bernadette?” is set mostly around rainy Seattle. But the movie version will be filmed, at least in part, at 31st Street Studios in Pittsburgh's Strip District.

The movie about an agoraphobic but brilliant former architect who disappears before a family trip to Antarctica will star Cate Blanchett in the title role, according to IMDB. She'll be joined by Kristen Wiig as her update neighbor, Billy Crudup as her genius husband who is working on a secret project for Bill Gates at Microsoft, and Judy Greer as a doctor who leads a treatment facility.

The book by Maria Semple is told from the viewpoint of Bernadette's 15-year-old daughter, Bee, who sets out to track her mom down. No word yet on who will play that role.

Richard Linklater (“Boyhood,” “Dazed and Confused”) is set to direct.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
