Quote of the Day

I'm sure all you spazzes already read this - hell I'm sure all you spazzes have already tattooed this quote from Armie Hammer onto some intimate section of your body - but Armie was asked about the Call Me By Your Name sequel while he was in Toronto this weekend for his Hotel Mumbai premiere and here's what he said:

"It will happen because there are already people working on it and trying to make it happen. How much do I know and how much could I tell you are two very different things. I know a lot, but I can’t tell you anything. More than anything I trust the artistic direction to Luca and [novelist] André Aciman and to those guys who did such a good job handling it the first time around. The only thing I want to see is I want to see it happen. I want to do it again. I miss the whole crew. It was such a special time. It was such a collaborative, unique, and totally immersive filming experience that I never really had, nor since. If we get to do another one, I’ll feel really lucky.”

I know everybody's got a different opinion on whether a sequel should happen or not and for different reasons usually too, but I'm a Firm Yes or at least a Firm Wait And See - if the sequel sucks the original is still there, still a perfect thing, and if the sequel rocks then yahoo, more.

Anyway I haven't read any reviews of Hotel Mumbai yet but we'll keep you posted on whatever happens with the film, release-wise, of course - if you missed them right here we posted a few shots from the film awhile back. In summation I'm gonna let this new gif of Timmy take the floor...

That man ... so beautiful!

Sorry, what were you saying ...? ;-)

I love that he has the follow up firmly up there on his IMDB page. You do get the impression he absolutely had the time of his life making CMBYN, and is putting his hopes and energy behind a follow up. I also love that it has turned him into a bankable actor rather than ‘movie star’. Something to celebrate in a film making world where someone’s worth is measured by their revenue potential rather than their talent. And who (apart from Luca) knew he could do it?
