A Globetrotting ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Sequel Is in the Works
Call Me By Your Name may not have gotten the Best Picture Oscar last weekend, but the absolutely unforgettable queer coming-of-age tale charmed and seduced its way into our hearts last year nevertheless, and, as such, it’s getting a sequel.
If you haven’t seen the movie, I’m about to spoil the ending, so you might want to check back later after you’ve gotten a chance to watch it. As we know, Call Me By Your Name ends with Oliver leaving Elio after a summer of love and self-discovery, and, some time later, calling him on the phone and telling him that he’s gotten engaged. Cue end credits sequence of Timothee Chalamet weeping silently in front of a fireplace (and cue me weeping into my sweater in the theater).
I’m already conceiving the story with André Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards. It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone.
Armie Hammer and Chalamet will be back, too, and 2 Call 2 Name will be more of a globetrotting adventure: “You’re gonna see a lot of the East Coast of America ... They’re gonna go around the world,” Guadagino explained. He said he’d need to finalize the script before any shooting began, but he and the returning cast are all very excited to be back. Does this mean Sufjan will finally tell us whether or not it’s a video?
