Luca Guadagnino sees no “link” between the new cannibal film and Armie Hammer

Director Luca Guadagnino’s next film, Bones and all, tells the story of two cannibals who, in the 1980s, set out on a road trip across the United States. So it’s no surprise that some have already formed a link between the film and Armie Hammer, who he worked with Call me by your name.

But Guadagnino has been quick to say that it assumed a tie Bones and all and the actor was not conscious. In fact, he has been developing the script since 2020, the year before Hammer’s claims came to light. Hammer has come under extreme scrutiny and Hollywood backlash stemming from alleged instances of physical abuse, rape and, well, why not?, cannibalism.

In an interview with Deadlinestated Luca Guadagnino: “Any connection to anything else exists only within social media, which I do not engage in. The relationship between this kind of digital muckraking and our desire to make this film is non-existent and should be met with a shrug. I would prefer to talk about what the film has to say rather than things that have nothing to do with it.”

Luca Guadagnino also noted that moviegoers should not expect “shock value” with Bones and allwhich the Director states he despises and will not use as one “tool of horror”. He also tried to distinguish Bones and all from horror films as a whole, compare it to some extent The chainsaw massacre in Texas and The Exorcist– none of which he considers horror, but rather “a devastating portrait of America” and “a family drama”respectively.

You can undoubtedly expect to catch shock value in the upcoming documentary House of Hammerabout the legacy and downfall of the Hammer family.

Bones and all stars Taylor Russell and Timothée Chalamet, which received an Oscar nomination for Call me by your name. Luca Guadagninos Bones and all will premiere at the Venice International Film Festival next month before hitting theaters this fall.
