Coming off their wins this weekend at the Independent Spirit Awards and The Oscars, the team behind the film “Call Me by Your Name” is already in the talks for a sequel.

Director Luca Guadagnino is already turning the wheels for the conception of the follow-up to the critically-acclaimed film, which took home the Oscar Sunday for Best Adapted Screenplay.

Guadagnino spoke with USA Today on what fans could expect when the film’s sequel comes to the big screen.

"I'm already conceiving the story with André Aciman, and it's gonna happen five or six years afterwards," Guadagnino said. "It's gonna be a new movie, a different tone."

Stars Timothée Chalamet, who took home the award for Best Male Lead at this year’s Independent Spirit Awards, and Armie Hammer will be returning as lovers in the upcoming sequel. However, Guadagnino has revealed that this time fans will get to see their characters,  Elio and Oliver, travel the world.

When discussing the impact that the film has had Guadagnino states, despite the minor technical details they faced on set, it was just as much fun filming the motion-picture as it was for fans to view it.

"Apart from the fact that it rained for 28 days out of 30 of (shooting) — so it was very humid — we had a great time," he told USA Today. "It was wonderful, 'cause it was really like a family, a huge family being together for long holiday. It was great."

The film is based on the 2007 novel of the same name by André Aciman.
