‘I’M 1000% READY FOR CALL ME BY YOUR NAME SE­QUEL’

Ac­tor Ti­mothee Cha­la­met is more than rar­ing to go for the se­quel of Call Me by Your Name — which has been con­firmed by ac­tor Ar­mie Ham­mer

Hindustan Times (Lucknow) - Live - - ENTERTAINMENT -

Ac­tor Ti­mothee Cha­la­met has said Ar­mie Ham­mer and he are “1000 per cent” ready for the se­quel of their hit film Call Me By Your Name (2017).

Di­rected by Luca Guadagnino, the com­ing-of-age-drama fol­lows an un­likely ro­mance be­tween 17-year-old Elio Perlman (Cha­la­met) and 24-year-old Amer­i­can stu­dent Oliver (Ham­mer). Talks of a se­quel have been rife ever since the film’s re­lease, with di­rec­tor Luca Guadagnino also ex­press­ing his de­sire for a fol­low-up, and Ham­mer fi­nally con­firm­ing at the Toronto In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val that the film is in the works.

In an in­ter­view with Time Mag­a­zine, Cha­la­met, 22, said he is con­fi­dent that the se­quel will be made. “I don’t see any world where it doesn’t hap­pen... I think An­dre (Aci­man, writer of the book) is com­fort­able with a se­quel be­ing made. I know Luca wants it. And I know Ar­mie and I are 1000 per cent in,” he said.

The se­quel’s story, the ac­tor said, might take in­spi­ra­tion from Richard Lin­klater’s Boy­hood (2014). “I think it’ll be a cou­ple of years later. And I think that’s cool, to take ad­van­tage of the Boy­hood style of sto­ry­telling,” he added.
