‘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
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.
