Timothee Chamalet is already in talks for his next role. 

It looks like the Little Women actor is set to have a very big year, with a couple of projects already set and another one in negotiations. 

Multiple outlets report that Chamalet is in talks to portray Bob Dylan in a new film from Fox Searchligh and Ford v Ferrari helmer James Mangold. 

The yet-to-be-titled feature about the folk icon is set in 1965 and will follow Dylan “as he made his controversial shift to rock and roll and the electric guitar,” per Entertainment Weekly. 

Mangold does have experience making movies about musical icons, with 2016’s Johnny Cash biopic Walk The Line. The film earned Joaquin Phoenix an Oscar nomination and Reese Witherspoon an Oscar win. 

Next up, Chalamet is set to star in Denis Villeneuve’s Dune adaptation and the new Wes Anderson film The French Dispatch.
