Timothee Chalamet is one of the finest American actors of this generation and is known to play versatile characters on celluloid with the utmost authenticity in a very nuanced and detailed fashion. His upcoming movie is a Bob Dylan biopic, directed by James Mangold.
The much-anticipated movie is spearheaded by Timothee Chalamet, who plays the real-life role of Bob Dylan, who has been one of the most famous American singers and songwriters of all time. In his career span of over 60 years, he produced and wrote multiple hit songs with his unique creative sensibilities and touch.
This movie is definitely going to be a tribute to Bob Dylan, who was, is, and will always be one of the best artists we ever witnessed. The famous folk singer was in fact one of the first artists to write on moral issues, uniting people through music across the globe. He was also involved in the Civil Rights Movement, collaborating with other significant artists of that era.
Is Timothee Chalamet Going to Really Sing in the Bob Dylan Biopic?
Recently, when the director of the Bob Dylan biopic, James Mangold, interacted with the entertainment portal Collider at London’s ‘Star Wars Celebration’ about the much-anticipated movie, he revealed that the Oscar-nominated actor is going to really sing in the movie.
When asked whether Timothee will be seen singing himself in the film, Mangold instantly replied, “Of course!”
He further added and said that this film is an incredible true story about such an interesting moment in the American scene. It is unbelievable! Different characters, from Woody Guthrie to Bob Dylan to Pete Seeger to Joan Baez, all have a role to play in this movie.
The filmmaker further chatted with the entertainment portal and said as follows:
“It’s such an amazing time in American culture and the story of a young, 19-year-old Bob Dylan coming to New York with like two dollars in his pocket and becoming a worldwide sensation within three years — first being embraced into the family of folk music in New York and then, of course, kind of outrunning them at a certain point as his star rises so beyond belief,” the director told the publication.
He also gave away an inkling that the cast is excitedly anticipating the shoot, which is scheduled to begin somewhere in the month of August this year.
What’s In The Pipeline For James Mangold?
James Allen Mangold is an American filmmaker who debuted as a film director with Heavy and is best known for the films like Cop Land, Girl, Interrupted, Identity, Walk the Line, and 3:10 to Yuma. Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny is one of his most anticipated upcoming ventures, which will apparently hit the big screens in June.
