Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Midnight’ Already Done Filming

Before Sunset
Warner Brothers

In June we reported that Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater were thinking about making a trilogy of their ‘Before’ films. Now it appears that they’ve already finished shooting the film, which is now known as ‘Before Midnight.’

Deadline Hollywood reports that the film finished shooting last night, and the film is looking to find a distributor at the Toronto International Film Festival, which means they’ll probably have a rough assembly to show. Both films were produced by Castle Rock films, with the first released by Sony, though both are now owned by Warner Brothers. It appears that Castle Rock has produced this film as well, but they no longer have the relationship with Warner Brothers that guarantees the studio will pick this up.

Though both ‘Before Sunrise’ and ‘Before Sunset’ are respected and loved, the state of independent cinema means that – unless something thinks this smells like Oscars – it will likely skip a theatrical release, or play limited engagements in tandem with it being available on VOD. The film’s best bet for theatrical would be if Sony Pictures Classics really likes it. As the post-production process on a film like this is likely to be streamlined, ‘Before Midnight’ should be hitting theaters or VOD around spring 2013.
