Elio and Oliver’s story will continue in a “Call Me By Your Name” sequel.

Director Luca Guadagnino revealed he plans to draw inspiration from the latter half of the book which follows Elio and Oliver years after their summer romance.

“I’m already conceiving the story with [author] André Aciman, and it’s gonna happen five or six years afterwards,” Guadagnino told USA Today. “It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone.”

Guadagnino says he plans to bring back Timothée Chalamet, who earned a Best Actor nomination for his role as Elio, and Armie Hammer (Oliver) to portray the main characters.

However, there will be a change of scenery from Italy.

“They’re going to go around the world,” Guadagnino says.
