Call Me by Your Name fans, get excited. Director Luca Guadagnino revealed details of the movie’s sequel to USA TODAY on Sunday’s Oscars red carpet. The film, adapted from author André Aciman’s novel, is up for best picture.
“I’m already conceiving the story with André Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards,” Guadagnino told reporter Carly Mallenbaum. “It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone.”
The director also revealed the sequel will star Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet but will have a different backdrop. “They’re gonna go around the world,” he said.
Though Guadagnino said they needed to finalize the script before figuring out when filming would begin, he gushed about the experience of shooting the first film.
“Apart from the fact that it rained for 28 days out of 30 of (shooting) — so it was very humid — we had a great time,” he said. “It was wonderful, ’cause it was really like a family, a huge family being together for long holiday. It was great.”
