Screeners have gone out and filmmaker Richard Linklater ("Dazed & Confused") and Jack Black are already campaigning for their surprise indie hit "Bernie," which hit theaters earlier this year and collected a cool $9.2 million with its widest release being 332 theaters. A big player on VOD as well, "Bernie" was a major hit for Millennium Entertainment this year. So while doing the low-key rounds in New York at an awards party for the dark comedy, the L.A. Times caught up with both the director and star.

One of the best and most unexpected diptychs in recent years is Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset." Unexpected because Linklater and his stars and co-writers, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, surely didn't conceive as the films as a trilogy, let alone a sequel. But organically, as each film grew in popularity and the characters resonated for the trio and audiences, they decided to naturally expand the story line. "Before Sunrise" arrived in 1995 and it wasn't until nine years later that the trio created the belated sequel, "Before Sunset."

First up, the rumor was Richard Linklater's "Before Midnight," the supposed follow-up to "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset" was unexpectedly shooting in Greece just a few weeks after Julie Delpy told us that the project had a least a year to go before shooting. Ethan Hawke seemed to echo Delpy's sentiments recently: he and Linklater were in Greece only writing the film.

Well, there's good news and bad news. We'll give you the latter first -- despite what looked like a lot of evidence to suggest that the much talked about follow-up to Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" was now filming in Greece...it's not. However, it is being actively worked on, and while both Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy were spotted around Greece, it seems they are still putting ideas to paper.

In the past little while, buzz has been building strong about Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy reteaming with Richard Linklater to shoot a follow-up to their beloved duo of films, "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset." In June, Hawke let it drop that lensing was going to take place this summer, but when we spoke to Delpy earlier this month, she said it won't be until "sometime in the next year, year and a half," because they're still writing it. But, something is happening, which is prompting a lot of speculation at the moment.

When reports surfaced earlier this year that the long-awaited sequel to Richard Linklater's "Before Sunrise"/"Before Sunset" films would shoot this summer, many were surprised at the announcement. A collaboration between Linklater and actors Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke, last we had all heard, the film was still in the conceptualizing/writing stage.

It's rare for two films as perfectly pitched and utterly delightful as "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset" to come along, but can Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater three-peat? That's going to be the big question as news of the proposed followup has once again reared its head, and should it actually turn out to be fact, we could be seeing it very soon.

Given that he's one of the more diverse and prolific filmmakers out there, it's been a disappointingly long four years without a new movie from Richard Linklater ("Me And Orson Welles" premiered at TIFF in 2008). Fortunately, the Austin, Texas-based filmmaker is back with "Bernie," a dark comedy which reunites him two of his most memorable leads, Jack Black and Matthew McConaughey, and it has picked up strong reviews and, opening in limited release last Friday, has been performing surprisingly well at the box office.

Review: Richard Linklater's 'Bernie' Starring Jack Black Is A Harmless, But Charming & Funny Effort

Employing a laid-back, jovial and amiable mien, Richard Linklater's latest effort, the East Texas-set black comedy "Bernie," is not unlike the Austin-based filmmaker himself: affable, eager to please without pandering, and highly likeable. In fact, "Bernie," starring Jack Black as an endearing mortician and well-loved member of his small-town community in Carthage, Texas, is so delightful, and rather wryly comical, it’s easy to be charmed with the picture despite its modest ambitions, small-scale aims and slight nature.
