 Timothée Chalamet fans are extremely unhappy that his two new films have been delayed until 2021.

The actor was set to appear in both Wes Anderson's The French Dispatch and Dune, Denis Villeneuve's adaptation of Frank Herbert’s classic science-fiction novel.

However, both films have now been pushed back due to the pandemic.

The French Dispatch was meant to open in the summer after premiering at the Cannes Film Festival in May, while Dune was set for a Christmas release.

Warner Bros announced on Monday (5 October) that Dune – which also stars Zendaya and Oscar Isaac – will be held until October 2021.

It is currently unknown when Anderson will release his new film.

“With both The French Dispatch and Dune delayed until 2021, this year will be the first year without the release of a new Timothée Chalamet movie since 2014,” Film Updates tweeted, to which Chalamet fans replied in droves.

“More evidence that this is the worst year in recent recorded history,” one person responded, with another adding: “How can we get through this year without Timmy?”

Someone else pointed out that Chalamet appeared in Woody Allen's controversial A Rainy Day in New York, which was released in several countries despite being filmed several years ago.

Chalamet denounced the film, stating that he did “not want to profit” from the movie. He later announced he would donate his salary to three charities, including Time’s Up.

The actor’s decision came after allegations of sexual abuse against Allen by his daughter Dylan Farrow re-emerged. Allen has always denied the claims.
