Linklater wraps production on ‘Before Midnight’

Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy star in sequel to indie hits

Director Richard Linklater has wrapped production on “Before Midnight,” a sequel to the helmer’s indie hits “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset.”

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy reprise their roles as star-crossed lovers Jesse and Celine.

Linklater’s longtime collaborator, John Sloss of Cinetic Media, exec produced the pic and will handle domestic sales.

Producers include Linklater’s Detour Filmproduction, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Sara Woodhatch of Faliro House and Jacob Pechenik of Venture 4TH, as well as Martin Shafer and Liz Glotzer of Castle Rock Entertainment. Pic will be released worldwide next year.

Written by Linklater, Delpy and Hawke, “Before Midnight” lensed under the radar in Messinia, Greece. “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 scribes said in a joint statement. The trio previously earned an Oscar nomination for co-writing 2005’s “Before Sunset.”

Stuart Ford’s IM Global specialty label ACCLAIM is handling international sales.

Linklater’s dark comedy “Bernie,” starring Jack Black, Shirley MacLaine and Matthew McConaughey, is currently enjoying a long run in arthouse theaters after opening in May.
