“It’s gonna be a new movie, a different tone.”

He says that the next film may tackle the issue of AIDS head-on, he says in an interview with The Hollywood Reporter.

“I think Elio will be a cinephile, and I’d like him to be in a movie theater watching Paul Vecchiali’s Once More,” which is a 1988 French movie about a man falling in love with another man after leaving his wife. It is also the first french film to deal with AIDS.

He hints that it could be the first scene in the sequel.

It’s no surprise that CMBYN has made a large fan base after the first movie. Elio and Oliver’s heartbreaking story is all sorts of sad and realistic. It depicts the sad parts of love in any relationship. No homophobia, no antagonists, no tragedy. In fact, it may as well be the reason why the film is so beautiful; how love is normal and real, regardless of gender.
