Bones And All – a cannibal-themed coming-of-age story – will also feature Michael Stuhlbarg and Mark Rylance
New details are emerging about Luca Guadagnino’s hotly anticipated new horror film, Bones And All. According to reports, the director – who was interviewed for the A/W18 issue of AnOther Magazine – is turning the project into a Call Me By Your Name-themed reunion, choosing both Timothée Chalamet and Michael Stuhlbarg (who played the former’s father in the 2017 classic) for leading roles. The film will also star Chloë Sevigny, Mark Rylance and We Are Who We Are’s Francesca Scorsese.
Bones And All is an adaptation of a young adult novel of the same name. The book, written by Camille De Angelis, traces the story of a young, cannibalistic outsider named Maren, and her romance with disenfranchised drifter Lee. The pair join forces for a “thousand-mile odyssey” through the “back roads, hidden passages and trap doors” of 1980s America. The film started shooting around Cincinnati and Ohio at the end of last month.
The project is one of many that Luca Guadagnino has been linked to in recent months. In May last year, it was announced that he would be directing a Coen brothers-penned Scarface remake, and his sequel to Call Me By Your Name is still in the pipeline. That said, the latter may be delayed for the foreseeable future while Guadagnino focuses on other projects. “My heart is still there,” he told Deadline last week, “but I’m working on this movie now ... so will focus on this side of the Atlantic and the movies I want to make.”
