New Dylan Biopic, ‘A Complete Unknown’ May Enjoy a Streaming Release

Directed by James Mangold, a new biopic about Bob Dylan is expected to start filming this August, though the ongoing writers’ strike may play havoc with the scheduling. Titled A Complete Unknown, it stars Timothée Chalamet as the iconic singer, with other cast members including Benedict Cumberbatch, Elle Fanning, Boyd Holbrook, and Monica Barbaro.

It’s being reported that the film will be first released via streaming services. According to World of Reel, A Complete Unknown is pegged as “a Searchlight film intended for Hulu. It would be a surprise if Disney released this movie on a streaming service instead of a theatrical release, especially if the movie has the potential to be an awards contender.”

In A Complete Unknown, Chalamet plans to sing Dylan’s songs in his own voice, without the aid of lip-syncing. He’s being coached by Eric Vetro, described by Gabriella Paiella in a recent British GQ article as “the most sought-after vocal coach in America.” Vetro, who had earlier worked with Chalamet on Wonka, was quoted as saying, “Timothée has this magical aura around him. Almost like he has a light around him.

He takes what he does very seriously, but he also has a lot of fun with it. So we have a lot of fun.”

The film focuses on Dylan’s 1961 arrival in New York as a 19-year-old aspiring singer and his interactions with fellow performers Joan Baez, Woody Guthrie, and Pete Seeger, among others. According to the film’s synopsis, the biopic “follows Dylan’s ascendance into a cultural phenomenon, his strong relationships in the folk music world and his ultimate transition away from folk music, forming a band, confusing his fans and disappointing the music community who first took him in.

Director Mangold was quoted as saying: “It’s such an amazing time in American culture and the story of Bob — a young 19-year-old Bob Dylan coming to New York with like two dollars in his pocket and becoming a worldwide sensation within three years.”

  1. This is a potential awards contender, so it MUST be released theatrically. World of Reel has removed that article now, so I hope it isn’t true.
