Bones & All: First Look at Timothée Chalamet in Cannibal Love Story from ‘Suspiria’ Director Luca Guadagnino

A first-look image of Timothée Chalamet and Russell has been shared this morning, along with some plot details that flesh out the storyline. It is to be noted that the film centers on “star-crossed young lovers surviving on the margins of society, who meet and join together for a thousand-mile odyssey which takes them through the back roads, hidden passages, and trap doors of Ronald Reagan’s America. Despite their best efforts, all roads lead back to their terrifying pasts and to a final stand which will determine whether their love can survive their otherness.”

The script was written by David Kajganich, who wrote Guadagnino’s Suspiria. Camille DeAngelis wrote the novel on which the film is based, which is very much a cannibal story.

The cast for the movie adaptation also includes Mark Rylance, André Holland, Jessica Harper, Michael Stuhlbarg, David Gordon-Green, Francesca Scorsese, and Chloë Sevigny.

Guadagnino and Chalamet previously worked together on Call Me By Your Name.

Pic reunites Dune star Chalamet with his Call Me By Your Name director Guadagnino, in the first film the Italian director has shot in America. He’s filming right now in the Ohio tri-state area. The film, adapted by David Kajganich from the Camille DeAngelis novel, which explores the perspective of Russell’s character Maren Yearly who embarks 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.

Bones & All also features yet another reunion between Guadagnino and Michael Stuhlbarg, who gave a tenderly moving performance as Chalamet’s father in Call Me by Your Name (Guadagnino sure likes to continue his creative partnerships).

Instead focusing on how these characters are “othered” or on the “fringes of society” and that’s because they eat other humans. The film is based on Camille DeAngelis’ book of the same name, which does employ cannibalism as a metaphor for disenfranchised peoples during Reagan’s America.
