He is currently starring in Greta Gerwig's 'Little Women', but one of Timothee Chalamet's next roles will be a very different proposition.

Deadline is reporting that the 'Call Me By Your Name' actor is set to play Bob Dylan in a forthcoming biopic of the iconic musician.

It's called 'Going Electric' and will document Dylan's transformation the folk musician that he started out as, to the rock legend that he has become. In 1966, he was famously heckled by some of the audience at Manchester's Free Trade Hall, who denounced him as 'Judas' for playing an electric guitar.

It will be directed by James Mangold ('Ford vs. Ferrari', 'The Wolverine'), who previously directed Joaquin Phoenix in Johnny Cash biopic 'Walk the Line'.

Chalamet has reportedly already begun taking guitar lessons, although it's not yet know whether he'll sing Dylan's songs in the film. Filming is set to start after he finishes up in a play in London in May.

He had previously sung on-screen, however - in Woody Allen's 'A Rainy Day in New York', as seen below:
