That was fast. It turns out Richard Linklater was shooting “Before Midnight” in Messinia, Greece in recent weeks after all.
In fact Deadline reports that this third film in the series, following “Before Sunrise” and “Before Sunset”, wrapped filming late Tuesday night.
Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke reprise their roles as star-crossed lovers Celine and Jesse, the pair co-writing the script with Linklater. The trio shot the film quietly, so much so that the first hints of the project being shot didn’t emerge until a week ago.
Cinetic Media is set to sell the project at Toronto though there won’t be anything from the film to show to buyers.
