american actor Timothée Chalamet has fought for the film project “going electric” – about the life of the singer Bob Dylan– come true, and it finally did, since the film is in the pre-production stage. He has spent two years studying the songs and gestures of the so-called “rock poet”, in order to achieve a convincing interpretation.
But as same as Austin Butler in “Elvis” and joaquin phoenix in “Walk the line”, Chalamet will be the one who sings all the Dylan songs that are heard in “Going electric” and will not do playback. This was announced by the director James Mangoldwho was interviewed during the recent event Star Wars Celebration: “Of course. It’s an incredible moment in American culture. It will be the story of a very young Bob Dylan, 19 years old, who arrives in New York with two dollars in his pocket and becomes a worldwide sensation in three years. It’s a very interesting true story and about a very interesting time on the American scene.”
Mangold (who directed Phoenix in the role of Johnny Cash in “Walk the line”) also reported that the filming of “going electric” It will begin in August, but the actors who will play other important roles in the film still need to be selected. Meanwhile, Timothée’s latest work, Dune: Part Twowill be released in the United States on November 3.
