Seen filming commercial with Martin Scorcese

The 27-year-old Chalamet, who received an Academy Award nomination for his performance in Call Me by Your Name (2017), was reportedly seen filming a commercial directed by Martin Scorsese in New York City in April.

Scorsese has a long-standing advertising contract with Chanel. This gave birth to the speculations that the actor was set to become a face of the French luxury house.

The director was also behind the first Bleu de Chanel short film in 2010 when Ulliel was named Chanel’s first male face.
