Timothée to star in ‘The King’ + DVD news

Accoring to Deadline, Timothée is set to star in Netflix’ ‘The King’ as young Henry V.

Chalamet will star as the title character in The King, a Plan B-produced drama helmed by David Michôd. Production will start in June. Joel Edgerton and Michôd wrote the script.

Chalamet will play the young Henry V. After his brother is killed in battle before his coronation, a young king is coronated in the late 1300s. The reluctant ruler wears the crown at a time when England was near a war with France, and the empire is teetering. He rises to the occasion, admirably.

In other news, ‘Call Me By Your Name’ will be released on DVD/Blu-Ray on March 13 and ‘Lady Bird’ on March 6, with the digital release on February 13.

Oscars Luncheon + Vman interview and photoshoot

Timothée attended two events yesterday, the Oscars Luncheon and The Hollywood Reporter Nominees Night. You can see images from both in the gallery. He also gave two short interviews to VMan magazine. First he answered questions for Xavier Dolan and then had a chat with Frank Ocean. You can read some excerpts from both below. The interviews were accompanied by a new photoshoot which you can also see in the gallery along with another photoshoot for a French magazine Les Inrockuptibles (the interview is behind a paywall unfortunately for those who speak French).


XD Oh, everybody has spoiled that already! Thank you, you’re very sweet. So, what kind of artist are you? What are you looking for in your experiences with directors?

TC I look for a certain feeling, and I wouldn’t know how to describe it, but I know I’m always chasing it. I don’t quite know what it is that I’m after. I always like to think that the art doesn’t take place on screen, but in the audience member’s head. At a certain point I was able to come to grips with the idea to just “be.” That’s why I’m so impressed with your films, because you’re doing an incredible job just “being,” which is all I’m focused on while working. But you’re also weaving and keeping the story synchronized.

FO It seems like a good change of pace sometimes to do physically demanding films—the space, superhero, aggressive, big-budget action films.

TC Exactly. The project I’m jumping into is exactly that. I’m going to put on 25 pounds—I’m like a skinny little shit right now. Listen, I saw that one of your favorite films is The Master.

New interview + Dorian awards

There’s a new interview with Timmy and Saoirse Ronan in The New York Times. Be sure to check it out. You can read some excerpts below and see a few images in the gallery.

Timothée and ‘Call Me By Your Name’ also did well at the Dorian awards, winning Best Movie, Best Actor and the Rising Star awards.

Favorite coming-of-age films. Go!

TIMOTHÉE CHALAMET The one that took hold of me was a book, “The Perks of Being a Wallflower,” which was made into a movie later. It’s written in a way that only a young person could speak. And the unabashed lostness of the protagonist …

TC When you get to act in things as good as “Lady Bird” or “Call Me by Your Name,” you’ve got a huge responsibility to do them truthfully. So that young people watching can say, “I see myself on that screen!” What if I can’t do it?
