Imagining the Next 3 'Before Midnight' Sequels

First came "Before Sunrise." Then, naturally, "Before Sunset." And now, finally, "Before Midnight."

Boy, writer/director Richard Linklater sure enjoys his "one well-matched couple articulately dissect every facet of life and love" movies, doesn't he? He also likes the word "Before" a lot.

Since there are no signs of slowing down the Hawke/Delpy gravy train, we've proposed the following three movies through which Linklater can delve even deeper into Jesse and Celine's relationship as they age — including one that may or may not already exist (and won an Oscar).

Before Dinner

Before Bingo

Before Death
