Is Timothée Chalamet's Bob Dylan Biopic With Director James Mangold Still Happening?
Filmmaker James Mangold was set to take on the story of how Bob Dylan made the polarizing transition from folk music to rock in a film tentatively titled "Going Electric," and Timothée Chalamet had been cast in the Bob Dylan role. The project still has not come to fruition, but those who were hoping to see this story hit the big screen may be in luck.
In an interview with Variety, Chalamet updated fans on the status of the project, saying, "I haven't stopped preparing, which has been one of the greatest gifts for me." Part of Chalamet’s research for the role of Dylan was spending time in Woodstock at a local Airbnb a few years ago.
In a cover story for GQ, Chalamet commented, "It's been a wonderful experience getting to dive into that world, whether we get to make it or not. But without giving anything away — because I don't want to beat anyone to the punch, and obviously things have to come together officially — the winds that are blowing are blowing in a very positive direction."
