Timothée Chalamet was prepping for his role as Bob Dylan in “Going Electric” but the film won’t be happening anytime soon.

Cinematographer Phedon Papamichael told Collider that due to the pandemic, the film is on hold.

“We were going to do Bob Dylan with [director James] Mangold that didn’t happen, with Timothée Chalamet, about going electric in the ’60s,” he said, adding, “I don’t think it’s dead, but it’s a tough one to pull off in a Covid-era because it’s all in small clubs with lots of extras in period costumes so you’ve got lots of hair and makeup.”

Over the summer, Chalamet tweeted out a selfie of himself, followed Dylan’s lyrics and songs.

The film would follow Dylan’s transition from folk singer to rock star.

“He not busy being born is busy dying,” he quoted from Dylan’s song “It’s Alright Ma (I’m Only Bleeding)”.
