The project reunites director Luca Guadagnino with his Call Me By Your Name star Chalamet, and the filmmaker with his long-term screenwriting collaborator David Kajganich (Suspiria, A Bigger Splash). Chalamet is set to return to the Lido for the first time since making a splash there last year with Dune.

The film, an adaptation of the novel Bones & All by Camille DeAngelis, is a story of first love between Maren, a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society, and Lee, an intense and disenfranchised drifter. Producers describe it as “a liberating road odyssey of two young people coming into their own, searching for identity and chasing beauty in a perilous world that cannot abide who they are.”

Director Guadagnino said today: “There is something about the disenfranchised, about people living on the margins of society that I am drawn toward and touched by. I love these characters. The heart of the movie is tender and affectionate towards them. I’m interested in their emotional journeys. I want to see where the possibilities lie for them, enmeshed within the impossibility they face. The movie is for me a meditation on who I am and how I can overcome what I feel, especially if it is something I cannot control in myself. And lastly, and most importantly, when will I be able to find myself in the gaze of the other?”
