2017 Oscar-winner Call Me By Your Name was based on the novel of the same name by Andre Aciman, who has never penned a sequel, and so the upcoming film has no source material, and new characters are still being conceived. 

 

Guadagnino said that Oliver's wife “has to be a New England kind of hoochie woman,” adding that the couple will “have, maybe, five children." 

 

The story is set to continue five years after the events of the original, with Oliver supposedly about five years into his marriage to the women to whom he tells Elio, played by Timothee Chalamet, he is engaged towards the end of Aciman's novel. Chalamet has said he is "1000%'  on board, and has has compared the time-lapse between the two films to Richard Linklater’s Boyhood
