Last November, Ethan Hawke suggested a reteaming of he, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater for a follow-up to "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset." Now he tells Indiewire that the film will shoot this summer. As far as further details go, Hawke says, "

I’ve gotten into trouble, so I’m sworn to secrecy. The biggest change between this one and the last one is the Internet. The first time we did it, we didn’t have any pressure; nobody gave a shit." We give a shit now; the films have a passionate cult following.

EARLIER: Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy and director Richard Linklater are teaming up for a third chapter to accompany their beloved indie films "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset." Hawke tells Allocine, "All of three of us have been having similar feelings that we're ready to revisit those characters. There's nine years between the first two movies and, if we made the film next summer, it would be nine years again so we really started thinking that would be a good thing to do. We're going to try to write it this year." Revisit each of the films and the Jesse-Celine love story below:
