Who knows if we’ll ever get a sequel to Call Me By Your Name. Peronally, I think we’re good without one. But director Luca Guadagnino has been looking for ways to reunite with his star, Timothee Chalamet, and he seems to have locked in on the film to do it, and he’s bringing along Waves star Taylor Russell.
Deadline reports Guadagnino, Chalamet, and Russell are eyeing horror-love story Bones & All. Chalamet and Russell are in talks to star, and if all works out they’ll be directed by Guadagnino. There aren’t any additional details on the story, other than it’s written by Dave Kajganich.
Guadagnino and Chalamet have been trying to figure out a reunion since Call Me By Your Name earned four Oscar nominations, including one win, back in 2017. Nothing has panned out just yet. Since then, Chalamet’s star has risen considerably with roles in Lady Bird and Little Women. He’ll be seen next in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune, and Wes Anderson’s The French Dispatch. A remake of Suspiria was the most-recent film for Guadagnino, while he also the Chalamet-esque HBO series We Are Who We Are.
Since her critically-acclaimed performance in Waves, Russell starred in teen romance-drama Words on Bathroom Walls. She’s currently shooting the final season of Lost in Space.
