‘Before Midnight’ Wrapped
Richard Linklater’s anticipated sequel to ‘Before Sunset’ has completed filming in Greece.
Although both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy have both recently denied reports that the long-rumoured third Before Sunset/Sunrise movie was even close to being filmed, Deadline has reported that the film – aptly titled Before Midnight – has in fact just wrapped. Very sly...
It’s been close to nine years since Richard Linklater turned his camera on indie cinema’s most charming, articulate but somehow frustrating couple – Celine and Jesse – who first met on a train headed to Vienna in 1995’s Before Sunrise and then crossed paths again in Paris in 2004’s Before Sunset.
Following the same loose structure of the two gems that preceded it, Before Midnight will follow the couple wandering their way through the streets of Greece. And with 2004’s film wrapping on a beautifully ambiguous endnote, fans will no doubt be eager to learn how life has played out for the duo in the past decade.
With the script once again penned by Linklater, Hawke and Delpy, the trio offered up this statement: “It’s great to be back together again, this time in beautiful Greece to revisit the lives of Celine and Jesse nine years after Jesse was about to miss his flight.”
