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.
“Hot Summer Nights” was recently, exclusively released to DirecTV Cinema, giving the opportunity to get screen captures of the whole movie! The screen captures have been added to the gallery – Make sure to check them out!
“Hot Summer Nights” will be released in theaters July 27, 2018.
