It seems that a movie sequel for Call me By Your Name might not happen. But in October we’ll be able to discover the second part in the new book Find Me, writer André Aciman confirms.
The Call Me By Your Name writer Aciman did not only confirm the sequel, but his book publisher already teased some of the main plot points: “In Find Me, Aciman shows us Elio’s father Samuel, now divorced, on a trip from Florence to Rome to visit Elio, who has become a gifted classical pianist. A chance encounter on the train leads to a relationship that changes Sami’s life definitively. Elio soon moves to Paris where he too has a consequential affair, while Oliver, now a professor in northern New England with sons who are nearly grown, suddenly finds himself contemplating a return visit to Europe.”
According to the writer, the movie adaptation inspired him to further explore the lives of Elio and Oliver on paper: “The world of Call Me By Your Name never left me. Though I created the characters and was the author of their lives, what I never expected was that they’d end up teaching me things about intimacy and about love that I didn’t quite think I knew until I’d put them down on paper. The film made me realise that I wanted to be back with them and watch them over the years.”
While there were rumors and hints going around regarding a movie sequel, it now seems fairly unlikely that such a movie is in the works. But with a second book coming out, anything could happen!
