Timothée Chalamet Set To Heat Up Your Screens in 'Hot Summer Nights'!
Timothée stars in this new indie in which his character, Daniel, is sent to live on Cape Cod for the summer with his aunt. Daniel will go from being the quiet, awkward new kid to one of the biggest drug dealers of the area once he meets neighbor Hunter (Alex Roe). As he enters this dangerous world, Daniel will also fall for Mitchell’s sister, McKayla (Maika Monroe). Daniel will have to balance his new underground gig and new love interest while trying to not lose himself.
NewcomerElijah Bynum wrote and directed this teen thriller where the preppy Cape Cod teens meet the edgy, rebellious ones. Just by the looks of the trailer, the film seems to be very aesthetically pleasing and stylish, and Timothée’s character seems to enjoy his life in Cape Cod, going to parties, having a part-time job, and hanging by the beach. But the more he gets into the drug world, the more money he will be dealing with, and the more risks he will begin to take. (AsBiggie taught us, "Mo' money, mo' problems"!) Will he have to risk it all and decide between love or money?
Also starring in the film are Maia Mitchell, William Fichtner, Thomas Jane, and Emory Cohen.
Young Hollywood caught up with the stars of the movie last year at South By Southwest:
Summer Nights is not the only project we’ll see
Timothée in this year. He will be starring in A Rainy
Day in New York with Selena Gomez andElle Fanning, as well as Beautiful Boywith Steve Carell later this year.
Mark your calendars! Hot Summer Nights is set to premiere in theaters July 27 and will be exclusively available on DirecTV June 28.
