castle rock entertainment and filmmaker richard linklater will reteam with ethan hawke and julie delpy this fall to make a followup to linklater's 1995 romance, before sunrise.
budgeted at less than $10 million, the untitled film will shoot this fall in paris. it's a likely candidate for release through warner bros. pictures' classics division.
in the original, young american jesse (hawke) and french student celine (delpy) meet on a train in europe. they take a side trip to vienna that lasts just one night, but the twentysomethings discover they have an intense connection. it comes to a bittersweet end when they part at the train station the next morning.
in the sequel, it's nine years later and jesse is on the french leg of the book tour for his novel when he finds celine once more."
before sunrise is my favourite film of linklater's so the prospect of a sequel is very exciting for me. what do others think?
