2017 will be remembered as the year when Call Me By Your Name reminded us of what it was like to be young, in love, and unhappy. And so there has been some certainty about the launch of a sequel to this movie in the near future.
Luca Guadagnino directed the 2017 coming-of-age romantic drama film Call Me by Your Name. Its screenplay, written by James Ivory, who also co-produced, is based on André Aciman’s 2007 novel of the same name.
Call Me by Your Name was bought by Sony Pictures Classics before its presentation at the 2017 Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2017. The film received several awards, including several for its writing, directing, acting, and soundtrack.
At the 90th Academy Awards, it garnered four nominations, including Best Picture and Best Actor for 22-year-old Chalamet (the third-youngest contender in the category), as well as Best Adapted Screenplay.
The script also took home awards at the 23rd Critics’ Choice Awards, 71st British Academy Film Awards, and Writers Guild of America Awards in 2017. And that is how it is an amazing movie to watch!
The film Call Me By Your Name concludes with Elio gently accepting Oliver’s engagement. Guadagnino has already revealed information about the narrative, which will take place “five or six years later,” in the late 1980s. And he has some huge ideas in mind for the film.
The filmmaker has stated that the AIDS issue, as well as other international events of the period, such as the Gulf War and the ascent of Silvio Berlusconi in Italy, would play a significant role in the tale.
Call Me By Your Name has two main protagonists depicting Oliver and Elio and other supporting actors.
- Armie Hammer as Oliver
- Timothée Chalamet as Elio Perlman
- Michael Stuhlbarg as Samuel Perlman
- Amira Casar as Annella Perlman
- Esther Garrel as Marzia
- Victoire Du Bois as Chiara
- Vanda Capriolo as Mafalda
- Antonio Rimoldi as Anchise
- Elena Bucci as Bambi
- Marco Sgrosso as Nico
- André Aciman as Mounir
- Peter Spears as Isaac
- Beppe Grillo as himself
The film is a coming-of-age narrative, romance, and slice-of-life film all rolled into one. Call Me By Your Name was nominated for Best Picture and went on to win Best Adapted Screenplay at the Academy Awards.
Overall, the picture was well-reviewed by critics. Along with its Oscar nominations, The National Board of Review called Call Me By Your Name one of the ten greatest films of the year.
Initially, the film was lauded for its performances and use of music, as well as its role in bringing more LGBTQ+ tales to the Oscars stage. It also grossed over $40 million at the box office, gaining a lot of attention after screening at Sundance in January of 2017.

Luca Guadagnino, the director of Call Me By Your Name, recently discussed the potential of a sequel for the film, stating that it is unlikely to happen anytime soon. Guadagnino described the prospect of a sequel as “very complex” right now in an interview with Deadline, citing Chalamet and his own hectic schedules.
Guadagnino is presently working on Bones & All, his first feature shot in the United States. Having said that, the filmmaker hopes to be able to produce a sequel one day. He can even see the first shot in his thoughts.
Despite some criticism due to the movie theme and storyline, many fans of the film still desire a sequel, and the source material is undoubtedly available. Following the popularity of the adaptation, a sequel to the novel, Call Me By Your Name, titled Find Me, was published in 2019.
While the novel takes place decades after the original, Guadagnino has explored a film proposal that would take place just three years later and confront the AIDS pandemic.
Call Me By Your Name was adapted from the André Aciman book of the same name. The novel concludes with an epilogue in which the protagonists meet again after 15 years, with Elio paying a visit to the now-married-with-children Oliver. Oliver returns to Italy five years later to learn of Elio’s father’s death.
While there is no sequel novel to Call Me By Your Name, the original does explain what happens to Elio (Timothée Chalamet) and Oliver (Armie Hammer) after their summer romance.
