According to all involved, the “Call Me by Your Name” sequel is more than just a pipe dream. Armie Hammer is the latest to confirm that work is being done on a follow-up to last year’s Oscar-winning romantic drama, telling Variety that “it will happen because there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen.”
“More than anything I trust the artistic direction to Luca and [novelist] André Aciman and to those guys who did such a good job handling it the first time around,” Hammer continues. “The only thing I want to see is I want to see it happen. I want to do it again.”
“I miss the whole crew,” he adds. “It was such a special time. It was such a collaborative, unique, and totally immersive filming experience that I never really had, nor since. If we get to do another one, I’ll feel really lucky.”
In an interview with IndieWire at the Venice Film Festival last week, Guadagnino said that he was “scribbling ideas” for the sequel. “The truth of the matter is that I love the characters of ‘Call Me by Your Name,’ even of ‘Suspiria,’ and the opportunity to bring them back for more adventures is something that is infectious to me. It’s not that I am a sort of unsatisfied person who needs to continue stories that have been made and accomplished in themselves.”
