The Call Me by Your Name Sequel Is Gonna Happen, but Not for a While

Ever since it was confirmed earlier this year, fans have been eagerly and patiently waiting for any and all details about the sequel to 2017's critically-acclaimed, gay love story Call Me by Your Name. Unfortunately, according to one of the film's lead stars, it looks like we'll have to wait a long time before we see a Call Me by Your Name sequel hit the big screen.

According to Vulture, during an appearance at the Savannah College of Art and Design's annual Savannah Film Festival, actor Armie Hammer (who played Oliver in the film) talked about what the production timeline of a Call Me by Your Name sequel would look like, telling attendees, "chronologically in the story line, it doesn’t happen right after the first one. There is a gap. So Luca wants to wait so that we age a bit more so that gap makes sense, kind of like a Linklater thing."

"Luca has walked me through the movie: where it starts, where it goes, where it ends, all the characters, and everything that’s supposed to happen," Hammer also said. "We know this. He’s basically broken this down for us."

While waiting (for an indefinite amount of time) to see if Elio and Oliver ever get their happy ending is literally the worst thing ever, if the Call Me by Your Name sequel is anything like its beautifully-crafted predecessor, it will definitely be worth the wait!
