The city that the original film may be in quarantine right now but it looks like Call Me By Your Name is moving on. In a new interview, Luca Guadagnino, the director behind the movie, confirmed that there will be a sequel and the entire cast is coming along for the ride.
Whether or not CMBYN was going to get a part two has been a bit of a fraught conversation since the first film ended. While some who were a part of the project seemed excited about the possibility, others -- read: Armie Hammer -- shot it down. The novel received a second edition titled Find Me. It follows Elio's father, named Samuel, who is headed to Rome to visit his son.
"A chance encounter on the train leads to a relationship that changes Sami's life definitively," the publisher wrote in a press release about the book. "Elio soon moves to Paris where he too has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a professor in northern New England with sons who are nearly grown, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return visit to Europe." That project debuted in October 2019.
Now, the second installment of the book is confirmed, but it's unclear whether or not it will follow the same trajectory. What we do know: the cast is the same.
"Of course, it's a great pleasure to work with Timothee Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Esther Garrel, and the other actors, they will all be in the new film," Guadagnino said in an interview with La Republica.
You know who he coincidentally didn't mention? The peach!
