‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Looks Back on His Early Career

‘Call Me by Your Name’ Screenwriter James Ivory Looks Back on His Early Career
Call Me by Your Name” has received critical acclaim, healthy box office (roughly $25 million worldwide on a production budget of $3.5 million) and four Oscar noms — and screenwriter James Ivory is a huge part of all that. Ivory worked on adapting André Aciman’s novel and was supposed to co-direct the film with Luca Guadagnino. But the producers thought the production worked better with one director, so Ivory bowed out of that role. He first was mentioned in Variety March 21, 1962, for directing the film “The Householder” and since then has helmed dozens of features for Merchant Ivory Films. Recently, he has been working on getting his film “Richard II” off the ground. Ivory talked with Variety about his start in the biz and how a New Yorker born in Berkeley, raised in Oregon and graduated from USC film school became synonymous with period films set in the U.K. and India.

“Shashi Kapoor for Shah Rukh Khan is a poignant coincidence” – Aanand L Rai

“Shashi Kapoor for Shah Rukh Khan is a poignant coincidence” – Aanand L Rai
When the first teaser for Aanand L Rai’s Zero was released we all presumed the song ‘Humko Tumpe Pyar Aaya’ originally featured in the 1960s’ musical blockbuster film Jab Jab Phool Khile, was being used on Shah Rukh Khan as a homage to Shashi Kapoor who died last month.
