According to Variety, Timothée’s play ‘4000 Miles’ that was supposed to open in London in 2020 but was put on hold because of Covid, has now been officially cancelled.
“4000 Miles,” the play that was to be headlined by the “Dune” star, has been canceled at the Old Vic two years after its debut was thwarted by the pandemic. The theater confirmed the cancellation to ticketholders on Thursday, offering credit with the venue or full refunds.
A statement from the historic London theater reads: “Following its postponement due to the pandemic, and despite an enormous amount of effort from all involved, we have now sadly and reluctantly concluded that we are unable to reschedule the show at a time possible for everyone involved.
“It’s been a long journey to get to this point and despite two years of trying hard to make it work, it has proved impossible. We’re sorry not to have better news, and we want to thank you for your continued patience and understanding,” continues the statement. “It’s hard to believe that it’s almost two years to the day that we should have been stepping onto The Old Vic stage for the first preview to share our show with an extremely eager audience (‘4000 Miles’ was one of the top-selling shows ever to be scheduled at this theater).”
According to Variety, ‘Wonka’ has been pushed back from it’s March release to December 15, 2023 amidst other release shuffling from Warner Brothers.
Warner Bros. has shuffled the release dates for several movies, including “Black Adam,” “The Flash,” “Aquaman 2,” “Wonka” and “Shazam 2.”
In non-superhero release moves, Timothee Chalamet’s turn as chocolatier Willy Wonka in the origin story “Wonka” is being pushed back several months from March 17, 2023, to Dec. 15, 2023.
Timothée is to be featured in a new Netflix behind the scenes podcast about the making of ‘Don’t Look Up’. Read more at Variety.
