Timothée Chalamet is stealing hearts and eating hearts in the upcoming trailer for "Bones and All," a cannibal love story that sees Chalamet under the direction of his "Call Me By Your Name" director Luca Guadagnino once again.

As reported by IndieWire, Chalamet and co-star Taylor Russel are learning how to love and survive on the margins of society. Chalamet as Lee is described as an intense and disenfranchised drifter. Together, the pair embark on a thousand-mile odyssey through winding roads and hidden passages during Ronald Reagan's presidency.

However, all roads for the lusting pair lead them back to confront their troubled backgrounds and appetites.

Guadagnino famously said that "only Timothée can play this role" and bring love to a cannibal character who is not in a horror movie.

"I think 'Suspiria' was aggressively provocative. I think this one is much more serene in its sense of self," Guadagnino said. "My true hope is that the audience doesn't reject the movie as a provocation because it deals with a taboo like cannibalism."

With "Bones and All," Guandagnino said he isn't aiming for shock value. "I was interested in these people. I understood their moral struggle very deeply. I understood what was happening to them," he said. "I am not there to judge anybody. You can make a movie about cannibals if you're there in the struggle with them, and you're not codifying cannibalism as a topic or a tool for horror."

The film is set to premiere Nov. 23 at the 2022 New York Film Festival, following its world premiere at the Venice Film Festival.

Rounding out the "Bones and All" cast includes Mark Rylance, Michael Stuhlbarg, Chloë Sevigny, and "Halloween Ends" writer-director David Gordon Green.
