joke on Twitter about how the press released for this was suggestively worded but Armie Hammer was honored by the the Texas Film Awards in Austin yesterday and his good pal Timothée Chalamet showed up to do the honoring, and also Richard Linklater & Paul Thomas Anderson were there too? I don't know and since I didn't did to go I don't want to look up the specifics - all we need to know is that picture happened and it makes me smile. IndieWire talked to Armie right over here - the choicest bit is about the Call Me By Your Name sequel (any interview any of these people give until this happens this will always be the choicest bit):
"Dude, [Luca] broke down the whole script for us... I mean, it’s not a finished script, but he’s got all the ideas for it. Luca’s all gung-ho about it, and by the way, if Luca’s doing it, I think we’re all gung-ho about it.”
André Aciman is doing a reading here in NYC tonight and I plan on going - I have my copy of the book for him to sign! - and hopefully he'll give good quote about the sequel too, stay tuned for that. Anyway don't forget - Call Me By Your Name hits blu-ray on Tuesday! You'll know it's out because you'll never hear from me ever again.
