According to IMDb, they're making a sequel..

It seems they're bringing back Mariza, Anella, and Mr. Perlman. But doesn't the dad die in the book during the fast forward?

Thoughts?

reply

Not sure what you mean. Does the novel continue where the film ends? In the movie we see the dad having a conversation with his son at the end.

reply

In the book, Mr. Perlman dies in the 20 years fast-forward. They didn't show that in the film; rightfully, so. They just left it at the speech he gives his 17 year old son.

IMDb says there's a slated sequel.

reply

It's meant to be a trilogy, much to our chagrin.

reply

Really?

reply

yes.

reply

I've never read the book. Only seen the film. How would it turn out in the third-part? What material would they use, if you don't mind me asking?

reply

I don't know, I didn't read it either. Apparently there are many books.

reply

There is one book.

reply

I read the book, and I don’t get it.
There’s not much going after what was depicted in the movie.
Unless they’re just going to use the characters but with an original screenplay.

reply

That's probably what they intend to do. I mean, I don't mind this at all. I would love to see Tim Chalamet in this role again. Maybe they could take a different route, where Elio is older and we will be shown the darker side of being gay? Who knows.
