Variety reports that ‘Dune’ will have it’s world premiere at the Venice Film Festival on September 3. A couple of new stills have also been released and you can see them in the gallery.
According to Deadline, Timothée is set to play Willy Wonka in a new origin story. The film will be a musical.
imothée Chalamet is ready to head to a world of pure imagination as the Oscar-nominated actor is set to star as the iconic inventor and chocolate maker in Warner Bros and the Roald Dahl Story Co.’s Wonka. Based on characters created by Roald Dahl, the story will focus on a young Willy Wonka and his adventures prior to opening the world’s most famous chocolate factory.
For Chalamet, the Oscar nominee has avoided the tentpole pic over the years with his upcoming Dune adaptation being his first true venture into the genre. This film will also give him a possible franchise was well. Sources also tell Deadline that Wonka will mark the first time Chalamet gets to show off his singing and dancing skills with several musical numbers set to appear in the film. He’s been the top choice for some time but scheduling was a hurdle that had to be overcome as training for those numbers is included in the prep for this film.
According to Vogue, Timmy is set to co-chair the Met Gala honouring American fashion in September.
The Met Gala’s return after a year’s hiatus is cause for celebration. Part one of the Costume Institute’s exploration of the nation’s sartorial identity, “In America: A Lexicon of Fashion,” opens on September 18th and promises to be a deep dive into American ingenuity. Everything from the luxe ease of Halston’s ’70s glamour to Rodarte’s ethereal edge and Kerby Jean-Raymond’s powerful political vision for Pyer Moss will feature within the forthcoming exhibition. Similarly, the night’s hosts also represent a cross-section of homegrown talent. Gen-Z superstars Timothée Chalamet, Billie Eilish, Naomi Osaka, and Amanda Gorman will serve as co-chairs, while Tom Ford, Adam Mosseri, and Anna Wintour comprise the evening’s honorary chairs.
They may be young, but each of the night’s co-hosts has made their mark on fashion. After breaking the leading man mold with his performance in Call Me By Your Name, Chalamet has become the most influential man in fashion. His unexpected mix of streetwear, lack of a stylist, and embrace of avant grade labels setting him apart from his peers.
According to We Got This Covered, Timmy might be in talks for a horror thriller called ‘The Hunter and the Fox’ with Keanu Reeves playing a villain.
Now, a new report is offering up that the 56 year-old is teaming up with Timothée Chalamet for horror thriller The Hunter and the Fox.
Apparently, Reeves is being eyed to play a father who begins an affair with a tour guide, causing his son to fall in with the wrong crowd, in a story that’s been described as having shades of Stanley Kubrick. Chalamet is said to be in contention for the role of a young man who exerts a bad influence over the son, before the story begins taking a more supernatural turn.
The Hunter and the Fox is listed as being in development on IMDb, and that’s about as far as the official information goes, although it sounds like a hugely exciting project.
Timothée conducted an interview with the crew of ‘Nomadland’ recently. You can see the video below.

Winona Ryder also appears in the commercial reprising her role from the original movie. You can see the commercial below and some screencaps, stills and BTS images in the gallery.

According to Deadline, Luca Guadagnino is planning on casting Timothée in his upcoming horror movie ‘Bones & All’, which is described as ‘a horror love story’.
The Call Me By Your Name team finally might be reuniting. Sources tell Deadline that Timothée Chalamet and Luca Guadagnino are eyeing a new movie and bringing Taylor Russell along for the ride. Chalamet and Russell are in talks to star in Bones & All with Guadagnino directing. Dave Kajganich penned the script. No start date has been set.
Not much is known about the project other than it being a horror-love story revolving around Chalamet and Russell’s characters. The package already is gaining steam as sources add that multiple bidders are interested.
