Sony Pictures Classics Acquires North American Rights to BEFORE MIDNIGHT

Sony Pictures Classics announced today that they have acquired all North American and UK rights to Richard Linklater's BEFORE MIDNIGHT.

Starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, Before Midnight is the third installment in Linklater's series that, so far, has included Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. As with the previous film, the third entry is written by Academy Award nominees Linklater, Hawke and Delpy.

Premiering to critical acclaim in the Premieres Section on Sunday evening at the Sundance Film Festival, Before Midnight has been one of the most talked about films at the festival.

In Before Midnight, we meet Celine and Jesse 9 years on. Almost 2 decades have passed since that first meeting on a train bound for Vienna, and we now find them in their early 40's in Greece. Before the clock strikes midnight, we will again become part of their story.

"In 1991 we were in Sundance with 'Slacker' and we witnessed the birth of a major American filmmaker. At Sundance 2013 with 'Before Midnight', we have further confirmation that Richard Linklater is a film master at the peak of his form. This one has it all as entertainment and as a work of cinematic art. It is a perfect movie made by not one but three auteurs, Rick, Ethan Hawke, and Julie Delpy. This movie will be incredibly successful around the world. And the acquisition is all the sweeter for our being back with Rickand producers Martin Shafer, Liz Glotzer and John Sloss," says Sony Pictures Classics.

Director Richard Linklater adds, "Shooting in Greece was one of my best film experiences ever. This has just been enhanced with the news that we've found such a good home with Michael and Tom."

The film is produced by Linklater, Christos V. Konstantakopoulos and Sara Woodhatch and executive produced by Jacob Pechenik, Martin Shafer, Liz Glotzer, and John Sloss.
