Luca Guadagnino Planning ‘Call Me By Your Name’ Sequel For 2020
Richard Linklater’s “Before” trilogy is famous for checking in on the relationship between Jesse and Celine (Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy) every 9 years, and Elio and Oliver from “Call Me By Your Name” will operate similarly on the big screen if Luca Guadagnino has his way. ScreenDaily reports that the Italian filmmaker is planning a sequel to his Sundance darling in which the movie will pick up with the characters three years later. Similar to the “Before” trilogy, actors Timothée Chalamet and Armie Hammer will match the ages of their characters.
“I want to do a sequel because Timothée Chalamet, Armie Hammer, Michael Stuhlbarg, Amira Casar, Esther Garrel – they are all gems,” Guadagnino said during the BFI London Film Festival. “The texture we built together is very consistent. We created a place in which you believe in the world before them. They are young but they are growing up. »

Guillermo del Toro Is Making a Documentary About Michael Mann, Which We Hope Will Be Called ‘Mann’s Labyrinth’
While presenting the new director’s cut of “Heat” at the Lumière Film Festival, Cannes chief Thierry Frémaux made an announcement sure to please cinephiles: Guillermo del Toro is making a documentary about Michael Mann. That’s enough to make films about well-known auteurs a trend, what with Noah Baumbach and Jake Paltrow’s “De Palma” and Susan Lacy’s “Spielberg.”
No other information is available as of yet, though the news is in keeping with del Toro’s habit of pursuing as many different movies as possible. (His list of unrealized projects is longer than his actual filmography, with everything from “Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban” and “The Hobbit” to “At the Mountains of Madness” and “Silent Hills” leaving fans to wonder “what if?” forever.)
Del Toro has sung the “Collateral,” “The Last of the Mohicans,” and “Blackhat” director’s praises on Twitter, calling “Heat” both “a film that is part of the lexicon of the medium” and “a stark Western set in a hyperreal LA.”

Harmony Korine Wants To Present ‘The Beach Bum’ In Odorama
Originally planned to start shooting in July, cameras are still waiting to get rolling on Harmony Korine‘s next film, “The Beach Bum.” The project has Matthew McConaughey lined up to star in the stoner comedy that will follow the misadventures of the rebellious and lovable rogue Moondog.

Jeffrey Katzenberg: Harvey Weinstein Is a Monster, But Didn’t Act Alone
Former Dreamworks chairman Jeffrey Katzenberg repudiated his former colleague Harvey Weinstein at Wall Street Journal’s WSJ.D Live conference in Laguna Beach, Calif. Monday evening, but also said that Weinstein couldn‘t have acted alone — and that it was time for Hollywood to change key policies.
“Make no mistake about it: He is a monster,” Katzenberg said. However, Weinstein had not been a lone actor, but had instead been protected by other men around him. “There is a pack of wolves.”
He went on to say that abuse of power and sexual exploitation had been part of Hollywood for a long time — but that there may be a fundamental shift ahead. “You are gonna see in the coming weeks and months real action,” he said. “We cannot go on this way.”
Katzenberg said that he had spent a long time in a mode of introspection ever since the Weinstein story broke. “I do a lot »

The move comes after Wanda has been rebuffed by the Chinese government for its aggressive overseas expansion moves. Gao had been instrumental in many of those moves — some successful, others that were aborted.
