Bob Dylan’s long-awaited biopic ‘Going Electric’ has been a work in progress for two years. However, Timothée Chalamet, who plays the young Dylan in the biopic, recently revealed that they have made progress. Speaking to Variety for a recent interview, Chalamet updated the fans and said that the winds are blowing in a positive direction.
The global pandemic has halted many projects, especially in the last two years. Bob Dylan’s biopic ‘Going Electric’ also had its share of it. Although it was announced in January 2020, the cinematographer Phedon Papamichael revealed that the biopic was delayed due to the pandemic. So, the film’s star Timothée Chalamet, who will portray Dylan, had a long time to prepare to get into character.
“I haven’t stopped preparing, which has been one of the greatest gifts for me,” said Timothée Chalamet, implying he is still trying to do his best for his role. “It’s been a wonderful experience getting to dive into that world, whether we get to make it or not. But without giving anything away — because I don’t want to beat anyone to the punch, and obviously, things have to come together officially — the winds that are blowing are blowing in a very positive direction.”
So, Timothée Chalamet doesn’t want to excite the fans beforehand, but he unofficially confirmed that they have made significant progress towards completing the work on the biopic. As fans have been waiting for two years, this is excellent news. Dylan has been working with the director closely for the details, and Chalamet put great importance on his role — so it’s safe to say that there’s much more to expect from ‘Going Electric.’
