Linklater quietly films 'Midnight' in Greece

Richard Linklater has gone back for another take on an old story. The Austin auteur's triquel Before Midnight continues the story begun with 1995's Before Sunrise and 2004's Before Sunset. The latest film were quietly shot in Greece and just wrapped, according to press release received by Variety. Apparently filming began in mid-August.

Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are back in front of the camera and once again get writing credit along with Linklater. The trio earned an Oscar nomination for Before Sunset. But for my money, Before Sunrise is a better film solely for Kim Krizan's script contributions that better fleshed out Delpy's character.

My big question is: does Linklater know that according to "his" Facebook page he lives in Los Angeles and goes by "Rich?"
