Sufjan Stevens composed songs for new film ‘Call Me By Your Name’
St. Vincent isn’t the only musician scoring a film premiering at Sundance this year. Sufjan Stevens has composed and performed original songs for drama Call Me by Your Name, which has already been picked up by Sony Pictures Classic, according to The Hollywood Reporter:
Set to debut in the festival’s Premieres section on Jan. 22, Call Me by Your Name is based on Andre Aciman’s novel of the same name and stars Armie Hammer as a 24-year old American scholar spending the summer of 1983 in Northern Italy, where he attracts the attention of a 17-year-old Jewish-American boy, played by Timothee Chalamet. Michael Stuhlbarg rounds out the cast as the boy’s father.
Guadagnino’s I Am Love played Sundance in 2010, and he recently directed A Bigger Spash and the upcoming Suspiria. He co-wrote Call Me by Your Name’s screenplay with James Ivory and Walter Fasano. Producers include Peter Spears, Emilie Georges, Guadagnino, Ivory, Marco Morabito, Howard Rosenman and Rodrigo Teixeira. Serving as executive producers are Naima Abed, Tom Dolby, Sophie Mas, Francesco Melzi, Lourenco Sant’Anna, Derek Simonds and Margarethe Baillou.
