Timothée Chalamet stars in Bob Dylan biopic, Ray Romano signs on to Netflix comedy, and Yellowstone begins filming its final season
A Complete Unknown (Fox Searchlight)
Timothée Chalamet (Wonka, Dune) is set to star in a new Bob Dylan biopic directed by James Mangold (Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny, Ford v Ferrari). The film will center around Bob Dylan’s big break into the music industry as a folk artist who took the risk of playing electric guitar at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, with a cast that includes Edward Norton as Pete Seeger, Boyd Holbrook as Johnny Cash and Monica Barbaro as Joan Baez. Production will be handled by Fox Searchlight, with filming set to begin in New York City and Montreal in late March.
No Good Deed (Netflix)
Ray Romano (Made for Love, The Irishman) and Lisa Kudrow (Feel Good) will star in a dark comedy for Netflix. Overseen by Liz Feldman, who previously oversaw the critically acclaimed Dead to Me for the streaming service, the show will follow three very different families who are each vying to buy the same 1920s Spanish-style villa that they think will solve all their problems. “No Good Deed was inspired by my many late nights during the early pandemic maniacally searching Zillow listings for a way out of my house,” says Feldman. Filming for the series is set to begin on May 3 in Los Angeles.
Yellowstone (Paramount Network)
Television’s most popular show will conclude this year, with the filming of season 5 part 2 to begin this April in Darby, Montana. Starring Kevin Costner, the series follows the Dutton family as they attempt to retain control of the largest contiguous ranch in the United States. The series has produced several spinoffs, including 1883 and 1923, for the Paramount+ streaming service, with showrunner Taylor Sheridan receiving a lucrative contract with parent company ViacomCBS.
