First will there be one? Will Arnie Hammer and Timothee Chalamet be in the movie? I for one believe there is plenty material in the book for there to be a sequel. I can see Arnie being able to play Oliver but how can Timothee play Elio many years post their summer romance. No question Luca should direct and be the force that makes a sequel actually happens. How long will we have to wait ?January 31, 2018 at 8:55 am #1202484252
There will be one. Luca Guadagnino have announced about it before and the movie haven’t covered the whole book.

Guadagnino has talked extensively about turning this into his Before Sunrise/Antoine Doinel series. I don’t know if that will work, but I’d be curious to see.January 31, 2018 at 10:26 am #1202484385
i am very opposed to this
Check out my online store 🙂January 31, 2018 at 12:36 pm #1202484464
No need to have a sequel. The story works perfectly in itself, ending included.January 31, 2018 at 1:07 pm #1202484480
I agree Marco. The romance ends and Elio’s heart is broken.January 31, 2018 at 1:16 pm #1202484490
I’ll love to see this turn into a “Before Sunrise”-type collection of films. The source material covered more ground as well. I’d gladly watch a sequel.January 31, 2018 at 2:37 pm #1202484520
I agree Marco. The romance ends and Elio’s heart is broken.
The key difference between the film and the book, as has been said ad nauseum lately, is that the book explores the characters beyond the 1980s. It’s not about the immediate heartbreak, it’s about how the relationship affected their lives long afterwards. I think a further examination of these characters is therefore possible, but by what Guadagnino is describing, he would necessarily have to diverge from the book to get the story he’s implying.February 1, 2018 at 7:52 am #1202484914
Honestly, I am all for this. Preferably, I would want this to be done within a year or two. Just to capitalize on TC’s popularity right nowFebruary 1, 2018 at 12:03 pm #1202485185
Just saw an interview TC did and he pretty much said he has never been in love and has not experienced the emotions Elio did. Sure could have fooled me that last scene was exactly how I felt too many times. Great acting TC 🙂

But the book goes pretty far into the future. How do you make Timothee look 40. Lol.
Yeah they would cast older actors to play Elio and OliverFebruary 1, 2018 at 9:10 pm #1202485629
A sequel in 10-15 years would be astonishing.February 1, 2018 at 11:10 pm #1202485687
If they actually want to go into their 40s and beyond, they need to just do the sequel much later. Recasting should not be an option. There’s really no indication they’ll do that though because Luca has said he would diverge from the book, so in the sequel they could meet up again just a few years after CMBYN takes place.
