Armie Hammer Confirms 'Call Me By Your Name' Sequel
The actor has remained tight-lipped about the details, but confirmed part two of the same-sex romance is on its way.
Get ready to party like it's 1983 because the Academy Award nominated Call Me By Your Name is getting a sequel.
Armie Hammer has confirmed that part two of the iconic movie is well on its way, saying “there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen.”
Call Me By Your Name follows an unlikely romance between a doctoral student (Hammer) and his professor's son (Timothée Chalamet) in northern Italy.
Hammer made the announcement this weekend at the Toronto International Film Festival but remained extremely secretive about the upcoming project.
“How much do I know and how much could I tell you are two very different things,” he teased.
“I know a lot, but I can’t tell you anything.”
For anyone worried that the second chapter of Call Me By Your Name could fall prey to the curse of the sequel (Grease 2, Speed 2, Basic Instinct 2 etc.), Hammer says he trusts that the story is in safe hands with director Luca Guadagnino.
“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 said.
“The only thing I want to see is I want to see it happen. I want to do it again.”
Director Luca Guadagnino has never been shy about his desire to make a sequel.
He has said the follow-up would take place in the early 1990s, a few years after the original flick, and will touch upon the early years of the AIDS epidemic.
Hammer's co-star Chalamet was nominated for a Best Actor Academy Award earlier this year for his role as Elio.
