Back in 1995 director Richard Linklater, best known for introducing us to the likes of Ben Affleck, Matthew McConaughey and Milla Jovovich in Dazed and Confused, attempted to give us a different kind of love story with Before Sunrise. The film starred Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy as two strangers who meet on a train inEurope and spend one romantic evening together in Vienna and then go their separate ways.
Nine years later, Linklater brought his stars together again for one more day of romance, this time in Paris. Despite the success of the original film and an increased budget, the sequel failed to find an audience. Regardless, a fanbase for the films remains and it hasn’t stopped rumors of a third film possibly happening from popping up. This week, reports emerged that a third movie was being filmed in Greece. MTV sat down with star Ethan Hawke to set the record straight.
According to Hawke, he and director Linklater were in Greece working on a third film, tentatively titled Before Midnight, but no filming was actually taking place. The duo were in Greece developing the script for a possible third film saying, “If it works out, we’ll film it, and if it doesn’t, we won’t. It’s not really worth talking about. I’m just here developing.” So nothing definite, but a third film is indevelopment.
