Hot off its Academy Award win for Best Adapted Screenplay, Call Me by Your Name, based on the André Aciman novel of the same name, is getting a sequel.

Director of the film, Luca Guadagnino, has said, “I’m already conceiving the story with André Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterward, so almost in 1990. It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone. You’ll see a lot of the East Coast of America – they’re going to go around the world.”

Part of what made the original so beloved was the performances of actors, Timothee Chalamet, and Armie Hammer, who were both nominated for an Oscar for their roles as Elio and Oliver, respectively.

The even better news is that the pair is likely to reprise their roles, with Armie telling IndieWire, “He broke down the whole script for us. I mean, it’s not a finished script, but he’s got all the ideas for it. Luca’s all gung-ho about it, and by the way, if Luca’s doing it, I think we’re all gung-ho about it.”

Although the film probably won’t be out before 2021, we can’t wait to hear what name it will be called.
