Timmy attended the Academy Awards last night where he presented an award for Best Adapted Screenplay to Taika Waititi for ‘Jojo Rabbit’. You can see images from the event in the gallery.
According to Collider, ‘The French Dispatch’ will open in cinemas on July 24, 2020. You can read more at Collider and see a poster for the movie (which doesn’t feature any actors).
Be on the look-out for pastels and whimsy this summer, as Searchlight Pictures has officially set a release date for Wes Anderson‘s new movie, The French Dispatch. The hyper-symmetric auteur will bring his latest film to theaters on July 24, 2020, and he’s bringing one heck of an ensemble with him.
The studio confirmed today that, in addition to Anderson regulars Bill Murray, Owen Wilson, and Adrien Brody, The French Dispatch also stars Benicio del Toro, Tilda Swinton, Lea Seydoux, Frances McDormand, Timothee Chalamet, Lyna Khoudri, Jeffrey Wright, Mathieu Amalric, and Stephen Park. Prior reports of the film being a musical turned out to be false—and it’s not four hours long, either—and for a while the only synopsis we had painted the story as “A love letter to journalists set at an outpost of an American newspaper in 20th century Paris and centers on three storylines.”
Deadline reports that Timothée is set to present an award at the Oscars on February 9.
Oscarcast producers Lynette Howell Taylor and Stephanie Allain have revealed the second group of presenters for the 92nd annual Academy Awards. They are Zazie Beetz, Timothée Chalamet, Will Ferrell, Gal Gadot, Mindy Kaling, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Lin-Manuel Miranda, Anthony Ramos, Mark Ruffalo, Kelly Marie Tran and Kristen Wiig.
“We’re excited to welcome these talented artists to help celebrate this year’s movies,” Howell Taylor and Allain said in a statement. “Each brings their own unique energy and appeal to our global audience.”
According to Deadline, Timothée will be starring in ‘Going Electric’, a Bob Dylan biopic from ‘Ford v Ferrari’ director James Mangold.
Searchlight Pictures has closed a deal with Ford V Ferrari helmer James Mangold to direct Timothée Chalamet as the young Bob Dylan, during the period when he was poised to become folk music’s most seminal figure. When Dylan instead embraced rock n roll and traded his acoustic guitar for an amp and an electric guitar, it created a huge outcry. And it cemented the status of rock music. Dylan is working actively with Searchlight and Mangold on the film, which the studio said is untitled but has been referred to around town as Going Electric.
Negotiations are underway with Chalamet, who has gotten strong reviews for Little Women, and who next will make his London stage debut opposite Eileen Atkins in 4,000 Miles, the Old Vic production of Amy Herzog’s Pulitzer-nominated drama.
I am not sure if he will sing Dylan’s great songs. But I’ve heard that Chalamet is already taking guitar lessons so he can familiarize himself with the acoustic and electric guitar.
