Are we going to get a new Before Sunrise sequel every nine years? That seems to be the pattern, as after Ethan Hawke hinted at another movie last year and various rumours have popped up since, it’s now been revealed that not only is a third film coming, but it’s already finished shooting and will be called Before Midnight.
Hawke and Delpy are back as Jesse and Celine, this time taking in Greece (after Vienna and Paris in the first two movies). There’s no news on plot specifics, although presumably it will be another fairly brief encounter with the duo.
In a joint statement Hawke, Delpy and director Richard Linklater 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.”
The plan is to get it in cinemas next year so that it was nine years between Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, and another nine until Before Midnight. (Source: Variety)
