Luca Guadagnino, after the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay to James Ivory, is working on the sequel of Call Me by Your Name. The filmmaker stated: "With André Aciman, we are thinking about what's next in this story. It'll be set six or sever years later, the tone will be very different and the protagonists will still be Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet."

Remembering the Oscar night, which coincided with the Italian elections, Guadagnino said: "I went to all the parties I was invited to. But then I went back to my hotel room to follow the results of Italian elections."
