Armie Hammer Says ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Sequel Is Unlikely

Screengrab

“I think we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment.”

Although the 2017 film Call Me By Your Name was a considerable success, Armie Hammer is uncertain he wants to return for a sequel.

“I think we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment,” Hammer told Vulture in a brief interview. “I don’t know that anything will match up to the first, you know?”

Hammer’s ambivalence is a shift from last year when he announced: “it will happen.”

At the time, he told Variety, “Because there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen.”

He continued: “People just seemed so excited about it that we were like, ‘Oh, yeah, f**k it! We’ll do it, sure!’”

Presently, Hammer says there have been “really loose conversations about it, but at the end of the day — I’m coming around to the idea that the first one was so special for everyone who made it … it felt like a perfect storm of so many things.”

The original film starred Hammer and Timothée Chalamet. Hammer went on to say, [If] Timmy’s in, and Luca’s in, I’d be an asshole 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?”
