Call Me By Your Name Sequel Is Doubtful As Director Announces New Project

Timothee Chalamet in Call Me By Your Name, 2017

Director Luca Guadagnino has announced his latest film project titled Bones And All is currently being filmed in the US. The film will feature Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg who both had roles in Guadagnino’s Call Me By Your Name in 2017, reports IndieWire.

Reuniting in Rome this year, Guadagnino and Chalamet had time to discuss the upcoming movie, which will see Chalamet star in the film adaption of Camille DeAngelis’ novel of the same name. According to IndieWire, Guadagnino felt that the role was perfect for Chalamet.

“The second I read it, I said, I think only Timothee can play this role… He’s fantastic, a great performer and to see him soaring the way he is doing now, I feel proud of him. And this character is something very new for him, both endearing and heartbreaking.”

Bones And All will be one of many upcoming projects for the Italian director with a Scarface remake in the works. But Guadagnino hinted in an interview with Deadline that a sequel for the beloved gay romance Call Me By Your Name was doubtful. “The truth of the matter is, my heart is still there, but I’m working on this movie now,” Guadagnino said. “I have many projects and so will focus on this side of the Atlantic and the movies I want to make.”

According to IndieWire, the plan for the Call Me By Your Name sequel was for Timothée Chalamet and his co-star Armie Hammer to age a few years before reuniting. But with Chalamet moving forward with projects such as his role in the upcoming Dune series and the Willy Wonka origin film, and Hammer’s career suffering due to alleged sexual misconduct, the much-awaited sequel looks unlikely.
