Set photos reveal Timothee Chalamet as Bob Dylan in the upcoming  biopic titled ‘A Complete Unknown’

Director James Mangold is returning to the biopic genre with his new film about singer Bob Dylan's life and journey to fame. Dune star Timothée Chalamet will play the lead role in the biopic titled A Complete Unknown. The cast also includes Elle Fanning from The Great as Dylan's love interest, Sylvie Russo, and Edward Norton as Bob Seeger. The story begins in 1965 when Dylan made a significant shift in his music career by switching from acoustic to electric guitar. However, the official release date for A Complete Unknown is still pending.

‘Jumanji 4’ in works, confirms actor Karen Gillan

Karen Gillan has confirmed that the fourth installment of Jumanji is still in the works, much to the excitement of fans.

However, due to the actors' unavailability and the 2023 strike, updates on the project have been scarce. The delay is understandable given the circumstances. Dwayne Johnson, busy with Disney's live-action Moana and his superhero debut in DC's Black Adam, will reprise his role as Dr. Xander. The cast also includes Jack Black, Kevin Hart, Cate Blanchett, Jamie Lee Curtis, Ariana Greenblatt, among others, making it challenging to coordinate schedules. Until then, fans can catch up on the previous parts on Prime Video.
