Armie Hammer has confirmed a Call Me By Your Name sequel is in the works saying there are already ‘people working on it.’

The actor was speaking to Variety at the 2018 Toronto International Film Festival when he made the statement.

‘It will happen’

Armie furthermore said: ‘It will happen because there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen.’

Pressed on details of the sequel to the Luca Guadagnino-directed Oscar-winner, Armie remained tight-lipped.

‘How much do I know and how much could I tell you are two very different things,’ he said.

In the original, Armie and Timothee Chalamet play gay lovers who fall in love in 1980s Italy.

The Social Network star also said: ‘More than anything I trust the artistic direction to Luca and [novelist] André Aciman and to those guys who did such a good job handling it the first time around’

Guadagnino has previously suggested the sequel could take place five years after the first film, in the early 1990s.
