Second 'Before Sunrise' Sequel, 'Before Midnight', Wraps Production

Before Midnight, the second sequel to Richard Linklater's 1995 drama Before Sunrise, just wrapped principal photography and will be available to buyers at the Toronto Film Festival, Deadline has learned.

This new comes as huge surprise because Julie Delpy, one of the film's leads, recently assured us that the movie won't be shooting until “sometime next year, year and a half.”

Ethan Hawke, the other lead, said he was only writing the film with Richard Linklater in Greece when MTV spoke with him recently as well.

“We're here writing a third installment to 'Before Sunrise.' 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 … We're just here workshopping it and developing it, trying to create a great script,” Hawke said.

Either Before Midnight has the quickest turnaround, from script to shooting, in movie history or we have all been lied to. I'm willing to believe the latter. One can't do something like this on a whim, without planning or coordination.

The question is, why all the secrecy?
