The original film”s cast will be returning for Call Me By Your Name 2, but development has been delayed due to Coronavirus.
There have been one or two conflicting stories about the status of the planned sequel to Call Me By Your Name in recent weeks, but director Luca Guadagnino has seemingly laid doubts about it to rest. In a new interview with La Repubblica in Italy (via Variety), he’s confirmed that the film is going forward, and that the original cast will return.
As such, we’re getting Timothee Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Esther Garrel leading the returning ensemble for the film. It’s unclear yet whether the story will be based on the novel Find Me from author Andre Aciman, but it’s very likely to be part of the mix.
Even though the cast are coming together, the film has still been hit by a delay due, inevitably, to the current Coronavirus lockdown. As Guadagnino revealed, “before coronavirus, I made a trip to the United States to meet a screenwriter I love very much, whose name I don’t want to say, to talk about the second part. Unfortunately, we had to put it on hold”. He doesn’t name the screenwriter, although James Ivory adapted the original book for the previous film.
More on the project as we hear it.
