Critically acclaimed 'Call Me By Your Name' might turn into a film series

Director Luca Guadagnino is considering doing another movie

2018-01-03

The critically acclaimed gay film Call Me By Your Name may get several sequels. 

The film, an adaptation of Andre Aciman's 2007 novel of the same name, tells the story of the relationship between 17-year-old Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and graduate student Oliver (Armie Hammer) as a passionate romance blossoms in 1980s Italy.

The indie flick has been critically praised and has earned several nominations at this year's Oscars, so it's no wonder director Luca Guadagnino is considering more films. 

In an interview with The Guardian, Guadagnino said: "These characters are so fantastic, and I want to know what happens to them. 

"The last 40 pages of the book tell you about 20 years in the life of Oliver and Elio. So I started to think about Michael Apted's Up, and the cycle of films Truffaut devoted to the character of Antoine Doinel.

"And I thought, maybe it's not a question of sequel, it's a question of chronicling everyone in this film."

He added: "I think seeing these characters growing in the bodies of these actors will be quite fantastic." 

While nothing has been confirmed yet, we're pretty excited.
