Call Me By Your Name director confirms plans for sequel and story outline
Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino has confirmed that a sequel is on the way.
The movie, which arrives on DVD this week, picked up the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay over the weekend and has been a hit at the box office.
Set in Italy over the summer of 1983, the film starred Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet and depicted the sexual awakening of a precociously talented 17-year old pianist who finds himself attracted to a young academic boarding with his parents over the summer.
Now, according to Guadagnino, plans for a sequel are very much underway and the plot is coming together.
Speaking to USA Today, he said: "I’m already conceiving the story with [author] André Aciman, it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards, so almost in the 1990s. It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone. You’re gonna see a lot of the East Coast of America… They’re gonna go around the world."
Then asked when fans could expect the film, Guadagnino replied: “We have to get there with the script, but we will.”
