Timothee Chalamet & Armie Hammer's 'Call Me by Your Name' Director Luca Guadagnino Reveals Sequel Plans!

Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino has confirmed there’s a possibility to turn his Oscar-nominated film into a series of films that deal with the AIDS crisis.

“I think it’s going to be a very relevant part of the story. I think Elio [Timothee Chalamet] will be a cinephile, and I’d like him to be in a movie theater watching Paul Vecchiali‘s Once More,” Luca recently expressed (via THR) – a 1988 film about a man who falls in love with a man after he leaves his wife, which was the first French movie to deal with AIDS.

“That could be the first scene [in the sequel],” Luca continued. “The novel 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 Andre Aciman that the story can continue.”

“In my opinion, Call Me can be the first chapter of the chronicles of the life of these people that we met in this movie,” Luca added. “And if the first one is a story of coming of age and becoming a young man, maybe the next chapter will be, what is the position of the young man in the world, what does he want – and what is left a few years later of such an emotional punch that made him who he is?”

Pictured: Luca joined by Timothee, Armie Hammer and his wife Elizabeth Chambers, Emma Willis, Fionn Whitehead and Lesley Manville at the 2018 London Film Critics Circle Awards held at The Mayfair Hotel on Sunday (January 28) in London, England.

FYI: Timothee is wearing a Berluti outfit.

    I’d love to see this movie have a sequel. Timothee Chalamet was truly amazing in this film, and his chemistry with Armie Hammer was electrifying. Hopefully they will both come back for the sequel if its made, or sequels if they want to make it similar to the Before Sunrise movies.

    Armie Hammer said before he would be interested in a sequel…and it seems Luca really wants this to happen…i have mixed feelings about a sequel…i was sad at the ending and i wished it would have ended happily, but i knew it wasn’t going to happen…of course i would like to see them to again, but i felt like it ended the way it should..and Luca wants to add the AIDS/HIV thing into it…i hope does not end up like i think it will, we have enough film about gay people and AIDS, especially with unhappy endings…also, i also heard Luca wants to make this into a series, how???

  • Kenneth Chow

    I read somewhere that Armie Hammer is interested in a sequel…i also heard that Guadagnino wanted to make this into a whole series, but what can they possibly do with these 2 for 4 or 5 films???

  • Just Saying

    In the books they meet again 15 years after the events of the movie, then 20 years after that. With good writers, and as long as both actors are willing, I think this could be a great trilogy, maybe made in a span of 10 years? Like I said similar to “Before the sunrise”.

  • Kenneth Chow

    But this is not going to follow the book, it’s going in a whole new direction…but i guess you are right, even if it goes in a new direction…it can still be good…
