Well here’s some unexpectedly joyous news.
Mentions of a new sequel to Richard Linklater’s ‘Before Sunrise’ and ‘Before Sunset’ had been popping up on movie news sites last week but the film appeared to just be in the preliminary stages of development (indeed, Ethan Hawke explicitly stated such). But it turns out that was all a ruse, the film has already been shot! It is definitely happening. We probably won’t get to see it until next year but for now, I can’t wait. I adore the previous two films and would happily cite ‘Before Sunrise’ as one of the best romantic films I’ve seen, and ‘Before Sunset’ as one of the greatest sequels. I really hope this can live up to them.
