Oscar nominees are heading to Ohio this summer. Production is now underway in Cincinnati on Bones and All, the upcoming film starring Academy Award Nominated A-list actor Timothee Chalamet, directed by Call Me By Your Name director and 2017 Academy Award nominee Luca Guadagnino. The film is expected to shoot through mid-July.
“Our local crews are back to work in Cincinnati on feature films and we couldn’t be happier,” said Film Cincinnati executive director Kristen Schlotman in a release. “This will be Guadagnino’s first film to be made on American soil and we’re honored to have it right here in our region.”
Bones and All is adapted from the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis with a script written by Guadagnino’s longtime collaborator and Ohio screenwriter David Kajganich. The two worked together on Suspiria and A Bigger Splash.
Set in the 1980s, the film is a love story between Maren, “a young woman learning how to survive on the margins of society,” and Lee, “an intense and disenfranchised drifter.” The two join together for “a thousand-mile odyssey, which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages, and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America.”
Reunion for Academy Award Nominees
This film marks a reunion for Timothee Chalamet and director, Luca Guadagnino, both of whom received Academy Award and BAFTA nominations for their work in Call Me By Your Name. As the two attempt to recapture that Oscar magic with Bones and All, here is quick leap back to 2018, as Chalamet discusses his work with his director Guadagnino…

Bones and All also stars Taylor Russell, Mark Rylance, André Holland, Jessica Harper, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Gorden-Green, and Francesca Scorsese.
Joining the film behind the scenes are production designer Elliott Hostetter, who previously collaborated with Guadagnino on We Are Who We Are, and director of photography Arseni Khachaturan.
