In my mind, traveling to Italy and consumption of peaches has skyrocketed since Call Me By Your Name, the movie where Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet spent a summer frolicking around an Italian mansion while wet humping and demonstrating how dancing was not taught in the Hammer household. Director Luca Guadagnino indicated he was looking into doing a line of sequels. Even André Aciman, the author of the novel of the same name, said he was down with more movies and was even writing a sequel to book. But now Armie is all, “Nah.” I guess he’s still waiting to make another go at The Man From U.N.C.L.E.
Famed Italian “giallo” director Dario Argento is known for his stylish and much-imitated horror flicks, with the most revered one being 1977’s “I think my dance instructor might be Satan!” cult epic Suspiria. Dario Argento was interviewed by Radio Rai 1’s Un Giorno da Pecora (via The Film Stage) and the host brought up 2018’s remake of Suspiria by “Call Me By Your Name” director Luca Guadagnino that starred Tilda Swinton and that bore from the 50 Shades trilogy. Suffice to say, Dario wasn’t thrilled by the remake and probably acted like those incel-types by trying to tank it on Rotten Tomatoes out of spite.
People who just can’t get enough of seeing a curly-topped twink climb on top of a beefy American mountain named Mt. Hammer (I’m talking to you, James Woods) got their lives made when director Luca Guadagnino said a few months ago that he’s hoping Call Me By Your Name will turn into a series of movies like that Before Sunrise shit starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. Luca did a recent interview with The Hollywood Reporter where he said that he’s already working on ideas for Call Me By Your Name 2: Electric Peachaloo.
