The Author Of ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Just Announced He’s Working On A Sequel

I have fantastic news for you if you had started to feel like you hadn’t brutalised your emotions enough with Call Me By Your Name and were crying out for a sequel: author André Aciman is currently working on.

In a tweet today, Aciman quietly announced that a follow up to the 2007 novel is in progress:

The director of the film adaptation starring Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer, Luca Guadagnino, has already spoken in the past about doing a sequel to the movie. From the New Yorker:

There were other movies to be made. For instance, he wanted to film a sequel to ‘Call Me by Your Name.’ He wanted Johnson to play the wife of Hammer’s character. “She has to be a New England kind of hoochie woman,” he said, riffing merrily. “You have, maybe, five children.”

“Oh, great,” Hammer said.

“The only problem is the title,” Guadagnino reflected. “It cannot be ‘Call Me by Your Name Two.’”

He’s right, it probably can’t.

Unlike the movie, the original novel does delve further into Elio and Oliver‘s futures, with the characters meeting well after their initial summer together.

So far the only details about the sequel available are that it is in progress, so who knows where this could go.
