Filmmaker Luca Guadagnino has revealed new details about his plans for a “Call Me by Your Name” follow-up to USA Today whilst on the Oscars red carpet on Sunday.
The Best Picture nominee, which won an Oscar for adapted screenplay, was based on a novel by author Andre Aciman. Guadagnino has revealed that he’s working with Aciman on the follow-up:
“I’m already conceiving the story with Andre Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards. It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone… they’re gonna go around the world.”
Actors Armie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet are both expected back for the sequel which will be set years later with the actors playing Oliver and Elio again, but this time they’ll be playing them closer to their actual ages as opposed to their characters being six and four years younger respectively.
Guadagnino adds they’re finalising the script first before they figure out when filming would begin.
