Unfortunate news for all those who have been waiting for the second installment of the 2017 film “Call Me By Your Name” that starred Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer: it is no longer happening.
What seemed to have been in the works for three years, the “Call Me By Your Name” sequel has allegedly been canceled after director Luca Guadagnino implied in an interview that it is the least of his priorities at the moment. Guadagnino was quoted saying the following at the set of his upcoming cannibal movie titled “Bones & All” which also stars Chalamet and another “Call Me By Your Name” actor Michael Stuhlbarg:
“The truth of the matter is, my heart is still there, but I’m working on this movie [“Bones & All”] now. And I’m hopefully going to do “Scarface” soon, and I have many projects and so will focus on this side of the Atlantic and the movies I want to make.”
This comes after many people, including James Ivory, the screenwriter for the original film who won an Oscar for his adaptation of the book written by André Aciman, have been dropping out of the project over the years. It’s also worthy to note that the future of Hammer’s career in the industry is uncertain amid serious allegations of sexual abuse and cannibalistic fetishism that have come to light this year.
So to those who have been looking forward to this, perhaps reading the novel instead will make up for the disappointment.
