Luca directed the disgraced 35-year-old in his critically acclaimed 2017 gay indie romance Call Me By Your Name, which grossed $41.9 million at the global box office.

Ironically, Guadagnino chose to cast Armie’s on-screen love interest Timothée Chalamet as cannibal drifter Lee in Bones and All over Hammer, whose cannibal scandal erupted in January 2021.

In House of Hammer, divorced two-time prosecutors Courtney Vucekovich and Julia Morrison reveal how he seduced them into extreme S&M sexual activities that traumatized them both.

After several women came forward, Hammer – who has since completed a nine-month stint in rehab – was dropped from his WME agent, publicist and future projects.

The Oscar-nominated producer stressed that his coming-of-age horror film, based on the 2015 novel by Camille DeAngelis, “has been in development for a number of years.”

“Dave Kajganich brought it to me in 2020,” Luca recalls.

“I immediately responded to these characters who are disenfranchised and living on the fringes of society. Any connection to anything else exists only in the realm of social media, which I do not participate 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’d rather talk about what the film has to say than things that have nothing to do with it.”

Bones and All also stars Taylor Russell, Mark Rylance, Chloë Sevigny, David Gordon Green and Francesca Scorsese.

The 1980s road movie will have its world premiere on September 2nd at the 79th Venice International Film Festival in Italy before opening in US cinemas on November 23rd.

“My real hope is that viewers won’t dismiss the film as provocative because it’s about a taboo like cannibalism,” Guadagnino said.

“With Bones and All, I didn’t care at all about the shock value, which I hate. I was interested in these people. I understood their moral struggle very deeply. I understood what happened to them. I’m not here to judge anyone. You can make a film about cannibals if you fight with them and don’t set cannibalism as a theme or instrument of horror.”

Next week! The 1980s road movie will have its world premiere on September 2nd at the 79th Venice International Film Festival in Italy before hitting US cinemas on November 23rd
