Timothée Chalamet Confirmed For 'Call Me By Your Name' Sequel
Luca Guadagnino will also return to direct the follow-up film.
Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer will reprise their roles as Elio and Oliver in the sequel to Call Me By Your Name, the hit 2017 film adapted from the André Aciman novel of the same name. In 2019, Aciman published a sequel, Find Me, which will be adapted for the screen by returning director Luca Guadagnino.
As translated by The Independent, Guadagnino confirmed the news in an interview with Italian newspaper La Republica. “It is a great pleasure to work with Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Esther Garrel and the other actors,” he reportedly said. “Everyone will be in the new movie.”
Back in 2018, Guadagnino revealed sparse details on the sequel to The Hollywood Reporter. “['Call Me By Your Name'] has 40 pages at the end that goes through the next 20 years of the lives of Elio and Oliver, so there is some sort of indication through the intention of author André Aciman that the story can continue,” he said of the novel.
Though few details on production and filming have been announced, Call Me By Your Name screenwriter James Ivory told IndieWire in 2018 that he “wouldn’t want to be involved” with Find Me. “I can’t imagine having to make Timothée Chalamet look 45. I mean, that would be horrendous and so fake looking,” he said.
Stay tuned as more news on the sequel emerges.
