Gay drama Call Me By Your Name sells to Sony Pictures Classics

Call Me By Your Name, a gay love story starring Armie Hammer, has sold to Sony Pictures Classics in advance of its official premiere later this month at the Sundance Film Festival. The deal, estimated to be worth low- to mid-seven figures, is for worldwide rights.

Adapted from the beloved 2007 novel by Andre Aciman, the film follows a love story that spans 20 years after a chance meeting in 1980’s Italy between a 17-year-old boy (Timothee Chalamet) and a twenty-something man (Hammer).

Call Me By Your Name has been directed by Italian director Luca Guadagnino, from a script by James Ivory, Walter Fasano and Guadagnino.
