Hawke and Linklater working on Before Sunset sequel in Greece

Ethan Hawke has confirmed to MTV he is developing a Before Sunset sequel in Greece with director Richard Linklater.

Hawke told Indiewire in June that the much-anticipated conclusion to the saga that began with Before Sunrise would shoot in the American summer, yet doubts grew as the months passed with no word on development. He has now confirmed he and Linklater are currently writing the screenplay and that, “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. It’s super good. We’re just here workshopping it and developing it, trying to create a great script.”

If the film goes ahead Hawke will reprise his role as Jesse and Julie Delpy will return as Celine. Are we to believe Hawke and Linklater are seeking inspiration with their writing location and the film could take place in Greece?

Discuss: Keen to see the continued adventures of Jesse and Celine?

  1. Well, at least it’s not a prequel.

  2. Yes I would love to see what becomes of Jesse and Celine. I love the two movies, they are amongst my favourites. Bring it on. 🙂
