Call Me by Your Name’s director Luca Guadagnino, told Italian newspaper La Repubblica that Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, and more of the cast will star in the sequel.
“Of course, it was a great pleasure to work with Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Esther Garrel and the other actors. Everyone will be in the new movie,” Guadagnino said.
The film is based on the novel which has a sequel titled Find Me, following the same characters from the original story 10 years later.
Call Me by Your Name took place in 1980s Italy and follows 17-year-old student Elio Perlman (Chalamet), who lives with his parents and falls for Oliver (Armie Hammer), a graduate student working for Elio’s father (Stuhlbarg). During the summer the two grow closer, eventually starting a romantic relationship, but Oliver moves back to the United States at the end of the summer, breaking off the relationship.
The film earned four Oscar nominations including best picture and best actor for Chalamet and writer James Ivory won the award for best-adapted screenplay.
Not much else is known about the sequel, but it’s currently on hold due to the coronavirus.
