Timothee Chalamet ‘in talks to play Bob Dylan in new film’

Timothee Chalamet is in talks to play Bob Dylan in a new film about the musician, according to reports.

US entertainment site Deadline says the Little Women and Beautiful Boy star will play a young Dylan during his defining period in the mid-60s, when he moved from folk to embrace the electric guitar and recorded the albums Bringing It All Back Home, Highway 61 Revisited and Blonde On Blonde.

The film will be directed by James Mangold, who is known for Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line and 2020 BAFTA nominee Le Mans ’66, it reports.

Dylan is said to be working with Mangold and film studio Fox Searchlight Pictures on the movie.

The working title is reported to be Going Electric, and will be produced in part by Dylan’s longtime manager Jeff Rosen, according to US magazine Pitchfork.
