Timothée Chalamet starred in Luca Guadagnino’s 2022 film Bones and All. Many have speculated that the film was loosely based on Armie Hammer’s rumored cannibalism fetish.
Hammer faced sexual misconduct allegations from several women in 2021, including one woman claiming that the actor raped her. While Hammer denied any criminal behavior, he did accept emotionally abusing two women.
Timothée Chalamet Breaks his Silence on Armie Hammer’s Controversy
Chalamet shared the screen with Hammer in the 2017 film Call Me By Your Name. But the Dune actor didn’t make any comments about rumors of Bones and All being based on Hammer’s fetish of cannibalism until recently.
Chalamet spoke his mind about the rumors in a recent interview with GQ. The 27-year-old actor gave a resounding answer to his movie’s shooting, coinciding with Hammer’s controversy.
I mean, what were the chances that we’re developing this thing? It made me feel like: ‘Now I’ve really got to do this.’ Because this is based on a book. I don’t know. These things end up getting clickbaited so intensely. Disorienting is a good word.
Timothée Chalamet revealed that his 2022 film was actually based on a book of the same name by Camille DeAngelis. The horror-drama movie received above-average reviews from critics and fans.
As of now, it’s still rated 6.8/10 with more than 51,000 reviews on IMDb. On the other hand, it currently has a 62% audience rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
Timothée Chalamet’s New Movie is Releasing in December 2023
Bones and All didn’t reach similar heights as compared to the actor’s other projects, but it was still a decent movie. Now, Chalamet is expected to go on a dominating run with two huge movies.
First, Chalamet will portray the iconic Willy Wonka from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory. Johnny Depp last assumed the role in 2005.
Now, 18 years later, Chalamet will play Willy Wonka with his own twist on the character in Wonka. The movie will focus on Wonka’s journey from a young adult working in a small candy store to becoming a world-famous genius. The movie is all set to release in theaters on December 29, 2023.
Following Wonka, Chalamet’s much-anticipated return as Paul Atreides in Dune: Part Two. The sci-fi sequel will arrive in theaters on March 15, 2023.
All things considered, the next six months or so could prove pivotal for Chalamet’s acting career. If he nails these two roles, he will become one of the most respected young actors in the world.
