Shooting on the “not really a Bob Dylan biopicA Complete Unknown is currently underway in New York City, and the first photos of Timothée Chalamet as the legendary singer-songwriter have emerged.

The long-in-the-works film, directed by James Mangold, traces Dylan’s journey from Minnesota to New York to meet Woody Guthrie through his memorable 1965 performance at the Newport Folk Festival when he plugged in an electric guitar to the dismay of folk fans.

A Complete Unknown — which was originally titled Going Electric before swapping with the “Like a Rolling Stone” lyric — was scheduled to begin production in August 2023 before the Hollywood strikes pushed its filming to this week, with photographers snapping Chalamet-as-Dylan on set.

The film also stars Elle Fanning as Sylvie Russo, Monica Barbaro as Joan Baez, Nick Offerman as Alan Lomax and Boyd Holbrook as Johnny Cash; while Benedict Cumberbatch was originally cast as Pete Seeger, the production delay forced him to drop out, with Edward Norton now in the Seeger role.

Mangold previously revealed that Chalamet will do his own singing in A Complete Unknown, with the film also Bob Dylan-approved.

“I’ve spent several, wonderfully charming days in his company, just one-on-one, talking to [Dylan]. I have a script that’s personally annotated by him and treasured by me. He loves movies,” Mangold told the Happy Sad Confused podcast in July 2023.

“The reason Bob has been so supportive of us making it, is … as in all cases I think of the best true-life movies are never cradle to grave but they’re about a very specific moment.”
