A Bob Dylan Biopic is coming

Found out some good news by surfing the web looking for new Bob Dylan information. 

 Todd Haynes Helming I'm Not There

March 4, 2006


Writer-director Todd Haynes is moving forward with his star-studded unconventional biopic of the seminal songwriter Bob Dylan, reports Production Weekly. I'm Not There is designed to star upwards of a half-dozen prominent actors as the singer-songwriter, portraying different stages of his life and various humors of his nature.

Christian Bale, Catch Blanchett, Colin Farrell, Richard Gere, Charlotte Gainsbourg and Haynes regular Julianne Moore are among those attached.

film follows seven characters, each embodying a different aspect of Dylan's life story and music. It's the first biographical feature project to secure the approval of the pop culture icon.

Haynes is planning a summer start in Romania

If filming will not begin until this summer, the movie would not be out until 2007.  So 6 men and one woman will play Dylan at different points at his life.  This makes sense since ther is an Alias theme in many of Dylan's work.  He assumes the identity of other people.  In the forthcoming film, the tables are turned since other people assume the identity of Dylan.

Getting back to Internet radio, right now I am listening to  I am listening to a channel called Dylan Undercover.  This stream plays covers of Dylan songs.  The stream must abide by the Digital Millenium Copyright Act (DMCA) which restricts the number of songs by a single artist that an Internet stream can play.  By featuring Dylan covers this stream abides by the DCMA.
