Surprise, surprise. After Ethan Hawke let it slip that a Before Sunset follow-up was set to shoot this summer, hopes were seemingly dashed when co-star Julie Delpy tricked us by stating that things were still a ways off. Then it got even more peculiar when we heard the crew was simply experimenting on just writing the film. It’s all been cleared up now — and thankfully it’s great news.
Deadline lets us know that Richard Linklater, Hawke and Delpy have just wrapped (yes, you are reading that right) production on the last film in the trilogy, Before Midnight. As previous rumored, this went down in Messinia, Greece and just finished less than 24 hours ago. The film is set to go on sale for distributors at Toronto tomorrow, but there will be script or footage to screen due to how recent production was completed.
The only statement thus far has been from the trio, who say, “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.” I’ve been eager to see Linklater, coming off the surprisingly strong Bernie, return to this story and I couldn’t be more enthusiastic that we’ll likely to get to see it by next year. Hollywood, open those pocketbooks and make it happen. Check out the first still of the film below.

As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]
