‘Call Me By Your Name’ director Luca Guadagnino is working on a new Netflix film: ‘Born to be Murdered’

As it would appear, Luca Guadagnino won't rest until the whole world has experienced his mastery in one way or another. The prolific filmmaker and director of our damn dreams has reportedly produced a new film titled Born to Be Murdered, and this time it will hit Netflix in 2021.

The best part? It's set in Greece, which means more European summer dreamscapes to tide us over until we can visit the Mediterranean coast-line once again. The good news doesn't stop there, either. The film will be directed by Guadagnino's right-hand man and Milanese filmmaker Ferdinando Cito Filomarino, with Call Me by Your Name cinematographer Sayombhu Mukdeeprom framing the whole project. Looks like the gang is back together and we couldn't be more thrilled.

As for the cast, Alicia Vikander and John David Washington will star alongside Boyd Holbrook of Narcos and Vicky Krieps. The plot, according to Netflix, focuses on a dark thriller about a couple who fall into the clutches of a violent, dark and eerie conspiracy while on holiday in Greece. At least they are on holiday in Greece!

The rest of the details are rather murky thus far, in typical Guadagnino fashion. Since his rise to notoriety after directing Call Me By Your Name, the director has gone on to head up some equally beautiful projects, alongside teasing a CMBYN sequel, and working on We Are Who We Are, a beautiful, queer coming-of-age television show.

The director-producer duo Guadagnino and Filomarino have been working together for over ten years, and have worked on some of Guadagnino's biggest projects to date with Filomarino acting as the Second Unit Assistant Director on Call Me By Your Name, I Am Love, A Bigger Splash and more.

As Netflix would put it, this entire line up is truly *chefs kiss* and we'll be fervently awaiting any further information or visuals on the upcoming project which has reportedly already been shot and edited. Meaning, COVID won't be slowing this one down any time soon (we can hope).
