Armie Hammer on Board for Call Me by Your Name Sequel
Mar 12, 2018 by: WENN
Armie Hammer is on board for the possible Call Me by Your Name sequel.
The 31-year-old told IndieWire that director Luca Guadagnino has started working on a script, and has already reached out to Hammer and Timothee Chalamet about reprising their roles.
"Dude, he broke down the whole script for us," he explained. "I mean, it’s not a finished script, but he’s got all the ideas for it. Luca’s all gung-ho about it, and by the way, if Luca’s doing it, I think we’re all gung-ho about it.
"You know, the experience of making the first one was so pure and beautiful that it wouldn’t matter how big my role was,” he added. "If the same people are involved, I’d do it all over again."
Chalamet won a string of awards for his role as lovestruck teenager Elio, and while he missed out on the Best Actor Academy Award earlier this month, the movie's writer James Ivory became the oldest competitive Oscar winner in history by winning Best
And Hammer is enormously proud of the movie's immense success.
"It wasn’t something anyone expected," he said. "We made this movie and didn’t know how it was going to be received. We poured our hearts and souls into it."
Since the Oscar-nominated movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival last year, Guadagnino has been discussing the possibility of a sequel.
He recently revealed his plans for a second film will be adapted from the epilogue of the Andre Aciman novel Call Me by Your Name, and will follow Chalamet's character Elio in a 1990s-set plot against the backdrop of the AIDS crisis, and hopes the film will be released in 2020.
