Armie Hammer's ex-wife Elizabeth Chambers has responded to news that his old Call Me By Your Name co-star Timothée Chalemet and director Luca Guadagnino are to reunite for horror film Bones and All.
The movie was first reported by Deadline. According to W, the film will be based on Camille DeAngelis' novel of the same name about teenage cannibals.
It follows news earlier this month of Hammer's alleged graphic, sexually explicit DMs to women detailing fantasises about cannibalism.
Responding to a Just Jared Instagram post describing the film as a "cannibal love story movie", Chambers simply replied: "No. Words."
Chambers and Hammer married in 2010 and went on to have two kids together, before announcing their divorce last year.
In the DMS in question, Hammer reportedly told a woman he is "100% cannibal" and that he wanted to "drink your blood".
The leaked DMs first appeared on the anonymous @houseofeffie Instagram account, and are yet to be verified as coming from Hammer's account.
Following the allegations, Hammer addressed his exit from upcoming Jennifer Lopez film Shotgun Wedding, saying in a statement: "I’m not responding to these bullshit claims, but in light of the vicious and spurious online attacks against me, I cannot, in good conscience now, leave my children for four months to shoot a film in the Dominican Republic.
“Lionsgate is supporting me in this and I’m grateful to them for that.”
Hammer's lawyer has since denied claims by his ex-girlfriend Paige Lorenze that he carved his initial into her lower hip.
In a statement to US Weekly on 22 June, the lawyer said: “These assertions about Mr. Hammer are patently untrue. Any interactions with this person, or any partner of his, were completely consensual in that they were fully discussed, agreed upon, and mutually participatory. The stories being perpetuated in the media are a misguided attempt to present a one-sided narrative with the goal of tarnishing Mr. Hammer’s reputation, and communications from the individuals involved prove that.”
It was reported today that Hammer is to also exit upcoming Paramount+ series The Offer, about the making of The Godfather.
Guadagnino's CMBYN was a huge critical success upon release in 2017, winning the Best Adapted Screenplay Oscar and also receiving nominations for Best Actor, for Chalamet, and Best Picture.
Chalamet will this year star in sci-fi epic Dune.
