After the success of “Wonka” and the “Dune” movies, Warner Bros. is continuing its partnership with Timothée Chalamet. The actor signed a first-look deal with the studio to collaborate on future projects as both an actor and producer, announced Warner Bros. on Tuesday.

However, this deal doesn’t restrict Chalamet from working on projects outside Warner Bros. It simply grants the studio the right of first refusal. While the specific terms of the agreement were not disclosed, it is described as a “multi-year” deal.

In a statement, Warner Bros. Motion Picture Group co-chairs and CEOs Mike De Luca and Pam Abdy expressed their admiration for Timothée Chalamet’s “commitment to his craft” and “unwavering dedication to giving 100% of his time and attention to every project he has made.”

Chalamet, in response, stated, “These are studio heads who believe in real movie making, and I’m so grateful for their support as an actor, producer, and collaborator. This partnership feels like a natural next step. Let’s go!”
