After a five-year hiatus from the directing scene, it is as though filmmaker Luca Guadagnino is making up for lost time, now that he’s making serious headway on both A Bigger Splash – teeing up a reunion with Tilda Swinton in the process – and his remake of Suspiria.
But as The Film Stage reveals, another of Guadagnino’s creative ventures is inching closer to release, now that Call Me By Your Name has officially entered production. Starring Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg and Timothée Chalamet, the movie is pitched as an adaptation of André Aciman’s eponymous novel, and will be co-written by James Ivory (A Room With A View).
Rooted in an ’80s setting, Call Me By Your Name chronicles the blossoming romance between two young Italian men. There’s no mention of a release timeline in today’s report, but an official synopsis does outline the story at the heart of Guadagnino’s latest. »

After not making a feature film for half-a-decade, director Luca Guadagnino is on quite a productive streak recently. His reunion with Tilda Swinton after I Am Love, the highly recommended A Bigger Splash, is now in theaters, and he plans to shoot his remake of Suspiria this fall. In between, he’s quietly begun production on a new feature.

Despite the “clothing optional” policy in the new film “A Bigger Splash,” a special screening at New York’s The Museum of Modern Art on Thursday was a mini fashion show of sorts. The guests’ outfits dazzled, but none as much as one of the film’s stars, Tilda Swinton, who was dressed in all white for the screening but donned a sparkly purple jacket for the afterparty.

Come.’ So we went along, and there was Stevie Wonder singing ‘Superstition, »
