Call Me By Your Name star Timothee Chalamet is set to star as a young Henry V in The King, a drama from director David Michôd and co-writer Joel Edgerton, the Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Chalamet has nabbed the lead role in the long-gestating, modern-day Shakespearean adaptation from Edgerton and Michôd, who earlier worked together on Animal Kingdom, which Michôd wrote and directed.
Chalamet starred opposite Armie Hammer in Luca Guadagnino’s Call Me by Your Name, a breakout role that earned him a best actor Oscar nomination and award season buzz.
The actor’s other film credits include the coming-of-age story Hot Summer Nights, Greta Gerwig’s Oscar-nominated directorial debut Lady Bird and Scott Cooper’s Hostiles.
Chalamet previously appeared on Showtime series Homeland. He is repped by UTA and Ginsburg Daniels.
