"Call Me by Your Name" sequel in the making
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."
The project was selected for the Résidence de la Cinéfondation at Cannes, the Script Station at the Berlinale, the Sundance Mediterranean Lab and TorinoFilmLab
Shooting has started in Bari for Renato De Maria’s new feature Lo spietato [lit. The unforgiving], set between the 1970s and the 199s, and starring Riccardo Scamarcio, Sara Serraiocco, and Marie-Ange Casta.
The new film by the Roman director is an Italian-French co-production and is due to star Marco Giallini, Michela Cescon and Massimiliano Gallo.
Roberto Benigni will be back on the silver screen in the role of Geppetto in Matteo Garrone’s upcoming Pinocchio.
