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.
Timothée presented the Santa Barbara award for Saoirse Ronan at the Santa Barbara International Film Festival yesterday evening and you can see some images of that in the gallery along with a video below.
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?
Timothée has been nominated for Best Performance by a Leading Actor for his role as Elio in ‘Call Me By Your Name’. ‘Call Me By Your Name’ and ‘Lady Bird’ have also been nominated for Best Picture among other nominations they both recieved. Congratulations for all! You can read the full list of nominees at the Oscars official site and relevant categories below.

For the past few days, Timothée has been out attending events relating to the awards season which culminated yesterday with the Golden Globes. Sadly, he didn’t win, but there are still nice images to look at which you can do in the gallery.
Variety has released it’s Actors on Actors interview Timothée did with Daniel Kaluuya of ‘Get Out’ fame. You can see that below along with a clip from ‘Lady Bird’ that was released by EW. The Tracking Board and The LA Times have also both released ‘Call Me By Your Name’ related interviews.
This has been an amazing year for you. Where do you go from here? How do you find a character like Elio in another movie? What are some of your goals for next year?
Patience and just the desire to work with good storytellers and good directors, and not necessarily in a lead capacity, as in the case of Lady Bird or Hostiles. And take any positive reception but with the understanding that the crux of the experience is doing it.
Are there any actors you’ve worked with who you’ve either turned to for advice or who’ve offered advice? What advice have you been given that you can share?
Well, just live for the moment and just to appreciate this period — and this is also from my own experience — because it’s certainly not always like this, and an actor’s career is unnatural if it isn’t filled with many ups and downs. Just live a day at a time almost.
Congratulations to Timothée once again for winning the Best Actor award at the New York Film Critics Circle Awards and to ‘Lady Bird’ for winning Best Picture. Read more at Variety. Relevant excerpt below. The awards will be presented January 3, 2018.
Best Actor: Chalamet (“Call Me by Your Name”)
A breakthrough staple so far this season, Chalamet has caught fire as a bona fide lead actor contender in this year’s race. He’s also had a busy year, appearing in “Hostiles” and “Lady Bird” as well. He is the youngest best actor winner in NYFCC history.
