Timothee Chalamet has signed on to join Christian Bale and Rosamund Pike in Scott Cooper’s Hostiles.
The Western follows an Army captain who reluctantly agrees to escort a Cheyenne chief and his family through dangerous territory. Chalamet will play the role of Private Philippe DeJardin.
Jesse Plemons also stars in the indie, which has a script by Cooper and late scribe Donald Stewart, who won an Oscar for co-writing the 1982 Jack Lemmon drama Missing.
Cooper, who helmed Black Mass and Out of the Furnace, also is producing along with Ken Kao and John Lesher. The film is shooting in New Mexico.
Chalamet just finished work on Luca Guadagnino’s adaptation of the novel Call Me by Your Name starring opposite Armie Hammer. He previously was seen in Christopher Nolan’s Interstellar, Jason Reitman’s Men, Women & Children, Pamela Romanowsky’s The Adderall Diaries, Julia Hart’s Miss Stevens and Andrew Droz Palermo’s One and Two, which premiered at Berlin and SXSW. He’s repped by UTA and Ginsburg Daniels.
