The director of Oscar winning film Call Me By Your Name has confirmed a sequel is already in the works.

The follow-up to the coming-of-age romance, based on the 2007 novel by André Aciman, will reportedly see stars Armie Hammer and Timothée Chalamet return as Oliver and Elio.

Director Luca Guadagnino confirmed to USA Today that he's already "conceiving the storey with Aciman".

"It's gonna happen five or six years afterwards, so almost in the 1990s.

"It's gonna be a new movie, a different tone," he added. "You're gonna see a lot of the East Coast of America. They're gonna go around the world."

When asked when fans could expect the film, the director replied: "We have to get there with the script, but we will."

Call Me By Your Name lost the Best Picture Oscar to The Shape Of Water on Sunday, but picked up Best Adapted Screenplay. It was declared the best film of 2017 by the Los Angeles Film Critics Association.
