Here's An Early Look At Timothée Chalamet In Costume As Bob Dylan For An Upcoming Biopic

Fresh off traveling the globe to promote his blockbuster film Dune: Part Two, Timothée Chalamet quickly went to work on a new project: filming for a Bob Dylan biopic.

In 2020, it was announced that the actor would play the folk musician in a biographical film set in the 1960s.

The movie, titled A Complete Unknown, is directed by James Mangold, whose previous films include Walk the Line, 3:10 to Yuma, Ford v. Ferrari, and most recently Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny.

Filming on the Bob Dylan biopic is underway in New York, and Timothée has recently been spotted on set and in character.

Earlier this month, he was seen in a very '60s costume, holding a beat-up guitar case and donning a cap, tattered scarf, worn jacket, and blue jeans. Timothée was spotted again in costume on March 24, filming a scene on a park bench:
