Meanwhile, Chalamet is reportedly reuniting with Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino on his new film.
Horror movie Bones & All is based on the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis and explores a young woman’s cannibalistic desires. The film’s protagonist, Maren Yearly, will reportedly be played by Waves star Taylor Russell.
Chalamet is also being considered to play Willy Wonka in a new prequel film called Wonka. The forthcoming film was confirmed last month (January 19) by Warner Bros and is currently set for release on March 17, 2023.
