A sequel to hit movie “Call Me by Your Name” has been confirmed.
Who is ready for round two of this love story? In a recent interview with Italian newspaper La Repubblica, the director of “Call Me by Your Name,” Luca Guadadgnino, confirmed that the Oscar-winning film will have Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and more orinal cast members coming back for the movie’s sequel. The hit 2017 film was based on the novel by the same name by author André Aciman, which follows the story of 17-years0old Elio Perlman (Chalamet) and 24-years-old Oliver (Hammer) as they spend a summer together in rural Italy in the 1980s. The film was an instant hit, with the sob-inducing tunes from Sufjan Stevens as the soundtrack.
The book’s sequel, titled “Find Me” was published last October and takes place place ten years later. The book itself is divided into three main stories, each with its own central character. First is Elio’s father, Professor Perlman, as he travels from Florence to Rome a decade later. The second is Elio, who lives and studies piano in Paris after the events of “Call Me By Your Name.” Finally, there’s Oliver, who is now a family man who lives and teaches in New England almost 20 years after that summer and is now contemplating a return trip to Italy. There is no update yet whether the film adaptation will follow the book, but it’s definitely something to look forward to.
But like just about everything else, production of the film has been temporarily halted due to the COVID-19 crisis. Guadadgnino also revealed that he was in the process of securing a screenwriter for the sequel before this all happened. “Before the coronavirus, I made a trip to the United States to meet a screenwriter I love very much, whose name I don’t want to say, to talk about the second part. Unfortunately, we had to put it on hold,” said the director.
