Timothée Chalamet’s Bob Dylan biopic Going Electric is still happening

The Oscar nominee has been linked to director James Mangold’s Going Electric since 2020.

Timothée Chalamet is still involved in the Bob Dylan biopic Going Electric.

After the 2020 film, directed by Ford v. Ferrari boss James Mangold, Going Electric has been shelved amid the COVID-19 pandemic. The film follows musician Dylan (Chalamet) as he rises to fame in the folk music scene.

“I kept preparing, which was one of the greatest gifts I’ve received,” Chalamet said in a Variety cover story. “It was a wonderful experience to dive into this world, whether we make it or not. But without giving anything away – because I don’t want to pre-empt anyone and obviously things have to come together officially – the wind that is blowing is in a very positive direction.”

Chalamet revealed in a GQ cover story that he rented a house in Woodstock, New York, in preparation for impersonating Dylan. The ‘Call Me By Your Name’ star also visited Dylan’s former homes in New York City and read the memoir ‘Chronicles: Volume One’ and met with ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ director Joel Coen to get more insight into the folk scene obtainable in the 1960s.

In terms of fictionalized features, the life of Bob Dylan was last explored in Todd Haynes’ 2007 experimental “I’m Not There”. In 2019, Martin Scorsese directed the documentary, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, documenting Bob Dylan’s 1975 tour.

“Going Electric” cinematographer Phedon Papamichael previously told Collider in October 2020 that the biopic “didn’t happen” due to the pandemic. “I don’t think it’s dead, but it’s difficult to pull off in a COVID era because it’s all in small clubs with a lot of extras in period costume, so you have a lot of hair and makeup,” Papamichael said .

With the musical prequel to Roald Dahl’s Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, titled Wonka after the famous fictional chocolatier Willy Wonka, audiences will be able to hear Chalamet’s singing voice earlier. Chalamet stars in the title role alongside Olivia Colman, Keegan-Michael Key, Sally Hawkins, Matt Lucas, Rowan Atkinson, Natasha Rothwell, Rufus Jones and Simon Farnaby. The film is scheduled for release on March 17, 2023.
