Ethan Hawke says that Before Midnight may have finally found the end of the story

There are so many missed chances in BEFORE SUNRISE and BEFORE SUNSET, whether they land in the middle or at the end of the movie. This is the beauty of Richard Linklater's films that show us the relationship between Jesse and Celine-- it's real and sometimes it takes awhile to come to any sort of conclusion.

When we last met up with the pair, Jesse is unhappily married and has a child, and Celine is fighting the good fight as an environmentalist with a boyfriend she never sees. The two seem like they should be together, and why time and life and the world has kept them apart, we do not understand. But maybe this time we will truly get some closure on what feels like the longest it has taken anyone to figure out they are meant for one another.

During an interview with Ethan Hawke, he says, but doesn't say that we may have finally found in an end in Jesse and Celine's story:

Ethan Hawke: [Before Midnight’s] really a continuation. For me, we just filmed it a couple days ago and I’m still kind of high from the experience. The hardest thing will certainly be… that the first two have a real following. People care about these characters and we really feel an obligation not to let people down about it. But at the same time, there’s no way we’re going to make everybody happy so we just had to try to go about with the same approach and same attitude. I love this movie. And I feel like in a strange way we may have come to the end of the story.

Collider: So this is the last one. I can’t expect another “Before” film every six or seven years?

Ethan Hawke: We’ll see. We’ll see. You never know but it feels like the story’s reaching its resolution.

Collider: What’s the writing process now like between you, Julie Delpy and Richard Linklater?

Ethan Hawke: It’s an unbelievably weird experience. On all the movies it’s happened really organically and each one in a completely different way. But the short answer is that we usually, the three of us, have gotten together and figured out an outline of where the characters are right now and an outline of what the movie would be. Then we go off separately and write a lot and come back together and compare what we’ve written. And kinda take the greatest hits of everybody’s work.

I don't care if this story goes on until they are in a retirement home, I cherish it so. I'm hoping, along with the rest of the fans to see BEFORE MIDNIGHT sometime next year.

Holy shit, what!? They already filmed it? or at least began it. That's so awesome. Seems like only so long ago we heard about it being talked about. That came out of leftfield. I can't wait!

Love the first 2 and before Sunset had everyone hanging so I really wanna know what happens next and hope for a decent conclusion to the Jesse and Celeste story. The films flow really well and the characters and their story just seem so natural and easy to relate to. I hope they make a few more in the years to come.

Love these films. I would always be open for more, but I understand if they wanted to finish their journey. I remember being apprehensive before Sunset came out, but everything was still there and then some... Really excited for Midnight---really wish we could get a release date.

I'm also a fan of Jesse and Celeste, hallucination or not it was a real treat to see them in Richard Linklater's Waking Life. I'm really looking forward to this movie and to find out just what happened to them after the end of Sunset but if this delivers a satisfying conclusion I won't be too sad to see them go.

I really like Before Sunrise. The whole movie doesn't feel boring at all. Love the series. Should there be the next one, maybe they should call it "After Sunset" perhaps, hehe.

After Sunrise would have to come before After Sunset. ;-)

i'm honestly pained by this news. If Jesse and Celine end up together at the end of "Midnight", that's wonderful. But I want to see films about this couple for years to come. Even Ethan himself said on the Special Features of "Sunset" that he could see them making 4 or 5 films. So I really hope that's the case.
