Fans of the hit movie “Call Me By Your Name: may just have to settle for one movie, as the sounds of a sequel sound far off.
The film that follows 17-year-old Eilo (Timothee Chalamet) and his sexual awakening with his dad’s graduate assistant Oliver (Armie Hammer) set amidst the romantic backdrop of Italy.
Despite the film winning an Oscar, Armie Hammer is not holding out on a second movie.
“Timmy’s out! I’m not sure why. Timmy said the only way he’d do it is if they paid him $15 million,” Hammer joked in an interview with Vulture.
He continued on saying that while there have been conversations about it, they have “been really loose.”
“I’m sort of coming around to the idea that the first one was so special for everyone who made it, and so many people who watched it felt like it really touched them, or spoke to them. And it felt like a really perfect storm of so many things, that if we do make a second one, I think we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment. I don’t know that anything will match up to the first, you know?” the actor said.
When asked if Chalamet and director Luca Guadagnino feel the same way, he admits “I haven’t had that conversation with them explicitly.”
Hammer does add that “If we end up with an incredible script, and Timmy’s in, and Luca’s in, I’d be an a**hole to say no. But at the same time, I’m like, That was such a special thing, why don’t we just leave that alone?”
Hammer was also asked about the rumours that he would be playing the Invisible Man. “I recently read those myself! What is the Invisible Man?” Hammer asked.
He added, “I read about it online: ‘Armie Hammer might play the Invisible Man.’ I was like, ‘Okay! Do I have to be in it?'”
