French actress and director Julie Delpy has denied that a sequel to the Before Sunrise and Before Sunset films is in the works, in an audience conversation at the Munich Film Festival.
The 1995 and 2004 films starred Delpy and Ethan Hawke as young travellers who meet in Vienna, then years later in Paris.
On Saturday Delpy quashed the prospect of a third film coming out in 2013.
"Everything depends on my getting a nanny," Delpy, who has a three-year-old son, said. "The fact is, I don't have a nanny, and so there's no screenplay," she said.
Delpy was in Munich to present her latest comedy films Le Skylab and 2 Days In New York, while also being featured in a retrospective of her films.
The latter is a sequel to her 2007 film 2 Days In Paris, which was her directorial debut. She told the Munich audience there would also be no further film in this sequence.
"I'm done with 2 Day films anywhere," Delpy told a fan who asked whether there might someday be a 2 Days In Munich film, as Delpy's partner, film composer Marc Streitenfeld, is from the southern German city.
"I have a feeling that my next film is going to be titled My life looking for a nanny," she joked.
Delpy's red carpet arrival at the film festival and subsequent meeting with the public - a popular feature of the Munich event - kicked off a series of meet-the-filmmaker sessions.
Others will include US actor and director James Franco, US indie filmmaker Todd Haynes, Danish cult director Nicolas Winding Refn and US actress Melanie Griffith.
