Ethan Hawke, Julie Delpy, and Richard Linklater have been terribly wishy-washy about the second Before Sunrise sequel over the past year. Hawke was the first to let slip that something was in the works, but the trio immediately backpedaled by insisting that nothing was set in stone.

Then we got word that shooting would start this summer, but none of the three said a peep as June and July went by. Last week, Greek papers noted that Hawke had been spotted actually shooting the film — now rumored to be titled Before Midnight — in Messinia, but Hawke quickly clarified that they were only at the writing stage.

Today we’re getting yet another reversal, as it turns out Hawke’s been somewhat less than forthcoming. In fact, a new report says that not only have cameras started rolling, Linklater’s actually wrapped Before Midnight already. You can even see the first image after the jump.

Last fall, Ethan Hawke spilled the beans on another potential Before Sunrise sequel, telling a French publication that he, co-star Julie Delpy, and director Richard Linklater had plans to get started on a script. But updates have been slow to trickle down since then. All three have been careful to emphasize that nothing’s set in stone, and until Hawke let slip in June that the plan was to shoot this summer we had only the vaguest idea of when cameras might roll.

Now we’re approaching the end of summer, and Hawke, Delpy, and Linklater are still keeping quiet about their plans. Newspapers in Greece, on the other hand, have not. According to local publications, Hawke is on set in the southwestern area of Pelponnese, shooting the film rumored to be titled Before Midnight. Mull over the details after the jump.

Ethan Hawke was the first to give away the possibility of a Before Sunrise / Before Sunset follow-up during an interview last fall, but since then Hawke, star Julie Delpy, and director Richard Linklater have been careful to avoid saying anything too solid on the subject. Deply would only affirm that they were “thinking about it” when asked about the possible project at Sundance, while Linklater denied that there was anything “concrete” when he was posed the question this spring.

But apparently something‘s been brewing between the three of them while we haven’t been looking, because now Hawke has let slip that the plan is to shoot this summer. Read his comments after the jump.
