According to a French newpaper called Charente Libre viaIndeWire, director Wes Anderson spoke a little about the upcoming ‘The French Dispatch’. You can read the whole thing at the link and some highlights below.
Up until now, all that has been known about “The French Dispatch” plot is that the film is a “love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris.” Anderson said the secrecy around the film has been intentional (“When I shoot I do not want any advertising”), although he was willing to pull back the curtain a bit and explain the story in more detail.
“The story is not easy to explain,” Anderson said. “[It’s about an] American journalist based in France [who] creates his magazine. It is more a portrait of this man, of this journalist who fights to write what he wants to write. It’s not a movie about freedom of the press, but when you talk about reporters you also talk about what’s going on in the real world.”
“I do not know the release date,” Anderson said. “I never know, but I feel [it] could be ready before the end of the year.”
Anderson’s most recent release was last year’s stop-motion film “Isle of Dogs,” which landed an Oscar nomination for Best Animated Feature. Should the film land a 2019 release, it would most likely be at the end of the year during the holiday movie season. More likely is a 2020 release in late winter or spring, which is when “Grand Budapest Hotel” and “Isle of Dogs” opened.
According to IndieWire, Timothée has been cast in Wes Anderson’s next movie, titled ‘The French Dispatch’, in as yet unknown role.
Wes Anderson’s next live-action movie started shooting a week ago under wraps in Southwestern France (Angoulême), where local French papers have reported various sightings.
According to one source close to the production, “The French Dispatch” is a love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th-century Paris and centers on three storylines. As usual the movie features a mighty ensemble including regulars Bill Murray, Frances McDormand, and Tilda Swinton (who currently stars in “Suspiria”) plus newcomers Benicio del Toro, Jeffrey Wright, and Oscar contender Timothée Chalamet (“Beautiful Boy”).
Back when Timothée was starting out in the movie business, he played a small role in a movie called ‘Burning Blue’ in 2013. His scene was unfortunately deleted, but you can see caps from it in the gallery.
Timothée gave an interview for Inquirer. You can read the whole thing at the link and some excerpts below.
Can you talk about your coming project, “Dune”? I saw on Google that Denis Villeneuve was going to do “Dune.” That was always like “The Dark Knight” by Christopher Nolan. I wanted to act in that film. It has always been my dream to do a big movie. And looking at the careers of Leonardo DiCaprio or Joaquin Phoenix, those guys exclusively work with great directors.
So I always told myself, if you do a big movie, make sure it’s with a really great director. I met Denis at the Hollywood Film Awards last year. I didn’t want to scare him away with my enthusiasm for the project, so I didn’t even bring it up. I just said, “Hi.”
I saw him over the course of last year. They went on a casting search and were looking to get someone younger than I am. I was just biding my time.
Denis saw me in “Call Me by Your Name,” but somebody snuck him a link to “Beautiful Boy.” Then, in the meeting I had with him, he told me he was going to be at the Cannes Film Festival. So he said, “If you will come to Cannes, we can meet and talk about it.”
So, I went to Cannes and then he said, “I saw ‘Call Me by Your Name’ and I thought you were great. I saw ‘Beautiful Boy’ and still thought you were great, but then I saw you take in ‘The King’ and I thought OK, whatever.” Which is funny to me because I hadn’t done it yet during that time and hopefully it’s presentable, but who knows?
Timothée attended a press conference for ‘Beautiful Boy’ and you can see images from that in the gallery along with a couple of behind the scenes images from the movie. Timothée Chalamet Network also celebrates it’s 2 years online today. The site was opened on September 15, 2016. And to celebrate, we changed the layout to feature the newest photoshoot images. Hope you all like it.
According to IndieWire, Timothée’s Woody Allen project ‘A Rainy Day in New York’ has been shelved in indefinitely and might actually never be released. Since we probably won’t get any new images from it for quite a while, or ever, I added some missing images from the film set, so you can put together the movie on your own.
Woody Allen finished production on “A Rainy Day In New York” in October 2017, but now it appears the movie won’t be released in 2018 or maybe ever. Sources tell Page Six exclusively “Rainy Day” has been shelved indefinitely by Amazon Studios, which produced the movie on a reported $25 million budget. The title follows Allen’s previous Amazon efforts “Café Society,” “Crisis in Six Scenes,” and “Wonder Wheel.”
Despite the fact that “Rainy Day” is already shot, Amazon faces a tough challenge releasing a movie directed by Allen in the #MeToo era. The director’s name has been in countless headlines over the last year as his adopted daughter, Dylan Farrow, brought old allegations accusing Allen of child molestation back into the spotlight. Amazon bombed with its December 2017 release of “Wonder Wheel,” starting with the film’s NYFF red carpet premiere being cancelled in the wake of the #MeToo movement.
Variety broke the news that ‘Beautiful Boy’ will get its world premiere at the Toronto Internaional Film Festival this September. The film already has a page at TIFF’s official website, and exact dates of screenings will be revealed on August 21. They also released a new still from the movie which you can see in the gallery.
Timothée is in final talks to star in Denis Villenueve’s ‘Dune’. According to Deadline:
Timothée Chalamet is in final talks to star in the Denis Villeneuve-directed Dune, the cinematic relaunch of one of the most celebrated science fiction properties of all time for Legendary.
Chalamet will play the lead, which in the David Lynch-directed original was Kyle MacLachlan. The young nobleman Paul Atreides is the central figure in the series of sprawling epic novels first published in 1965. It is set in the far future involving worlds beyond Earth, ruled over by competing feudal families who control access to a drug called Melange. Known popularly as “spice,” the drug gives its users heightened consciousness and an extended lifespan at the cost of crippling addiction and fatal withdrawal. Spice, use of which makes interstellar travel possible, is found only on the desert planet of Arrakis — aka “Dune” — and as such is the most valuable commodity in the galaxy.
There’s also a new clip out from ‘Hot Summer Nights’. You can see that at ET.
