Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke, And Julie Delpy Secretly Made ‘Before Midnight’

Wednesday, September 5 by
Hawke had no idea he was being filmed for a third installment. PUNKED! 

One could argue that this is the third secretly-made film in the trilogy, but one would only be saying that because the other movies weren’t terribly successful, and that would make one kind of a dick.

Because he exists in a very Spike, Mike, Slackers, and Dykes cinematic space, Richard Linklater is one of the few directors who is capable of making an entire movie on the down low. With all due credit to him, though, it helps that it’s a film that only about 14 people care about seeing, and that includes Hawke, Delpy and their living relatives.

Before Midnight will pick up in Greece, where Celine and Jesse are travelling. But did they go there together? I sure hope so, because it’s just like, “Gosh, get married already, you two!!!”

Right? Right? Right.

The film will be shopped around at this week’s Toronto International Film Festival, however, if you’re one of the aforementioned 14, you’re probably going to have to wait for wide release, because it’s probably only screened for buyers only.

Which is just fine by me.
