Still reeling from the success of his most recent film, Little Women, Timothée Chalamet has been tapped to play Bob Dylan in director James Mangold's new biopic, Variety reports.

While the title of the movie has yet to be revealed, we do know that the picture will be based on Elijah Wald's New York Times bestseller, Dylan Goes Electric!, which delves into Dylan's impact on folk music and his transition to rock. Dylan himself will produce the film alongside Mangold, as Mangold and Fox Searchlight Studios, who is distributing the picture, have already secured all the music rights for the movie.

The upcoming Bob Dylan project serves as Mangold's third biopic following Walk the Line and Ford v Ferrari. It comes at a time when music-related biopics are in high demand, as 2018's Bohemian Rhapsody about Queen frontman Freddie Mercury went on to win four Academy Awards, and Taron Egerton just won a Golden Globe for Best Actor for his portrayal of Elton John in Rocketman.
