Dune and Wonka star Timothée Chalamet is currently filming A Complete Unknown, which means that photos have come out showcasing his transformation into Bob Dylan.

The actor can be seen in his jacket and jeans, while sporting hair that's a bit more fuller and quite a lot wavier (in the first photo) or curlier (in the second photo). It might just be the outdoor lighting, but his hair looks like it has grey highlights in it.

The film follows Dylan as he arrives in New York City in the early '60s as a 19 year old, and immerses himself in the city's burgeoning folk revival scene, and later becomes a musical phenomenon.

A big focus will reportedly be placed on Dylan's (then) controversial choice to move away from acoustic folk and towards a more rock sound, backed up by a fully-amped band.

Logan and Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny's James Mangold is directing this one, and previously said that: "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 world-wide 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. It's such an interesting true story and about such an interesting moment in the American scene."

He also stated the Chalamet will also do his own singing for the project, rather than mime to Dylan's distinctive vocals.
