Bob Dylan Biopic Starring Timothée Chalamet Is Still in The Works and Will Go Electric!
More than two years after pre-production was indefinitely paused on Searchlight Pictures Going Electric movie, Oscar nominee Timothy e Chalamet who has been attached to the project since it was first announced has revealed a new update regarding the Bob Dylan biographical drama.
Speaking with Variety, Chalamet said that the filming of Going Electric is still ongoing and that things are going really well. He enthusiastically revealed that he never ceased practicing for the part, calling it a beautiful experience, despite the lengthy delay in the project.
One of the greatest gifts for me has been that I haven’t stopped preparing, Chalamet remarked. Whether we succeed or fail, it has been a tremendous pleasure to go into that realm. But without revealing anything since I don’t want to be the first to announce it and because things must definitely come together formally, the winds are blowing in a really positive direction.
James Mangold will helm the motion picture Going Electric. It details Bob Dylan‘s ascent to fame in folk music and the abrupt switch to rock ‘n’ roll. In the movie, Dylan will also interact with legendary musicians from the 1960s like Joan Baez and Pete Seeger. The rights to the Pop Culture icon’s music and the book Dylan Goes Electric by author Elijah Wald are included in the Fox Searchlight-produced movie.
Along with Andrew Rona and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Dylan will serve as the movie’s executive producer. Dylan’s longtime manager Jeff Rosen has joined the production as well, joining Mangold, Bob Bookman, Alan Gasmer, and Peter Jaysen of Veritas Entertainment Group, Fred Berger of Automatik, and Alex Heineman of The Picture Company.
The next Dune: Part Two is now in development with Chalamet. He will next be seen in the upcoming musical prequelWonka and Luca Guadagnino’s horror romantic thriller Bones and All.
