Armie Hammer would gladly star in a 'Call Me By Your Name' sequel after director Luca Guadagnino joked about bringing it back for a second movie
Armie Hammer is happy to star in a 'Call Me By Your Name' sequel.
The 31-year-old actor stars opposite Timothée Chalamet in the coming-of-age drama - which is based on André Aciman's novel of the same name - and had such a great time working on the love story, he'd be open to "anything" director Luca Guadagnino wanted to do in the future.
Asked about the filmmakers hints about a second movie, he said: "You never know with Luca. Sometimes he's joking sometimes I think he's not. People always say, 'You left a small part of the book out'.
"Well yeah, it might be a small part of the book in terms of overall page count, but it spans 20-30 years. Luca is joking about coming back to it but my answer to that is, I'll do anything Luca wants."
Even before the release of the movie, which follows the passionate relationship which develops when a young Italian man named Elio (Chalamet) meets Oliver (Hammer) after he visits the country to stay at his parents' villa, it has received a widespread positive response online and though Armie is happy about that, he's also feeling "apprehensive" because he fears there is no way the film can match audience expectation.
He added to Gay Times magazine: "It's pretty intense. Very few people have anything but the most positive things to say, so it's really hard to have a problem with that. I think also it does make me a little bit apprehensive because expectations can be the root of all suffering.
"If we spend so much time building this up, people are going to literally expect the most perfect movie of all time, which is impossible. It makes me excited but it also makes me nervous at the same time."
