Amidst Armie Hammer controversy; Timothee Chalamet roped in for Luca Guadagnino's cannibal love story 'Bones & All'

‘Call Me By Your Name’ team of actor Timothee Chalamet and filmmaker Luca Guadagnino is set to return for new feature ‘Bones & All’. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Chalamet is in negotiations for the project along with actor Taylor Russell of ‘Waves’ fame.

The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Camille DeAngelis, which has been adapted by Dave Kajganich.

It follows Maren Yearly on a cross-country trip as she searches for the father she’s never met in an attempt to understand why she has the urge to kill and eat the people that love her.

The project does not yet have a distributor but the filmmaker hopes to start production in April or May this year.

The update comes amidst a huge controversy kicked up by fellow ‘Call Me By Your Name’ actor Armie Hammer after certain explicit DMs went viral online.

The actor’s estranged wife, Elizabeth Chambers has now broken her silence and weighed in on the recent drama surrounding the movie and the controversy. According to E! News, Chambers, who filed for divorce from Hammer in July, commented on an Instagram report about the film that was described as a “cannibal love story movie.”

Elizabeth succinctly wrote “No. Words.”

Though Elizabeth did not offer any further clarification for her remark, it is the first time she has spoken regarding the recent outcry surrounding a collection of direct messages (DMs) allegedly sent by Armie that went viral earlier this month. The alleged messages included accounts of sexual acts and other cannibalistic explicit fantasies.

As per E! News, since the alleged messages were leaked, Hammer has dropped out of two projects: the action-comedy ‘Shotgun Wedding’ starring Jennifer Lopez and the upcoming series.

Chalamet, on the other hand, will next star in two films- Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’ and Denis Villeneuve’s sci-fi epic ‘Dune’.
