This is a bloody different role for Timothée Chalamet.
The 26-year-old heartthrob plays an allusive yet romantic cannibal in the upcoming horror drama “Bones and All.”
The coming-of-age film tells the story of a girl named Maren — played by Taylor Russell — who is desperate to find where she belongs when she becomes romantically involved a man named Lee (Chalamet).
In a dark twist, both characters are cannibals and travel across America together.

“There is something about the disenfranchised, about people living on the margins of society, that I am drawn toward and touched by. I want to see where the possibilities lie for them, enmeshed within the impossibility they face,” director Luca Guadagnino said in a statement about the film.
“The movie is for me a meditation on who I am and how I can overcome what I feel, especially if it is something I cannot control in myself. And lastly, and most importantly, when will I be able to find myself in the gaze of the other?” he added.The movie received a neatly nine-minute standing ovation at the Venice Film Festival. MGM
