In an interview with La Repubblica, director Luca Guadagnino confirmed that Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer have both signed on for the sequel to Call me By Your Name.
“Before coronavirus, I had a trip to the United States to meet a writer I love very much, whose name I don’t want to say, to talk about the second part.
Unfortunately, we had to cancel it. Of course, it is a great pleasure to work with Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Esther Garrel and the other actors...
Everyone will be in the new movie.”
Find Me, follow up to the novel Call Me by Your Name, was published in 2018, reprising the story of the couple years later.
Call Me By Your Name won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay. It was filmed in Crema, Italy and Chalamet tweeted after learning that it has been impacted by coronavirus,
“I’m thinking of EVERYONE in hotspots right now, young and old, but CREMA – my heart is with you, I can’t believe this is happening.
Heartbroken at these stories I‘m reading, in locations I know! Please try to stay safe.”
Crema is in the Lombardy region of Italy, one of the worst-impacted areas of coronavirus.
