Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino revealed he still wants to make a sequel to the 2017 Oscar-winning film.

The first film starred Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, and was highly commended during awards season.

Guadagnino talked to IndieWire at the Telluride Film Festival, which took place on 2 – 5 September.

“A sequel is an American concept,” stated the director.

“It’s more like the chronicles of Elio, the chronicles of this young boy becoming a man. It is something I want to do.”

The first film followed Elio (played by Chalamet) a teenager who spends his summer in the Italian countryside with his family.

He then falls in love with his father’s research assistant, Oliver, portrayed by Armie Hammer.

Since the films release, Hammer received a string of allegations against him, including sexual assualt and cannibalism.

Guadagnino previously expressed he’s interested in working with Chalamet again on a follow-up, but it depends on the young actor’s schedule.

The pair have worked together since the Oscar-winning feature.

Most recently, they teamed up for Bones and All, which is slated for a late-November release.

The film is a romantic horror which also stars Taylor Russell, Mark Rylance and Chloë Sevigny.

Guadagnino stressed that his working relationship with the 26-year-old has only continued to grow.

“It’s not as if I left Timothée at the height of his booming success, and then I found him four years later,” he said.

“We kept close. I knew that there was not much time to wait until we worked together, but only for the right project.”
