Variety is reporting quite the bit of casting news as director Todd Haynes (Far From Heaven) has before him names such as Cate Blanchett, Colin Farrell, Adrien Brody, Richard Gere, Julianne Moore and Charlotte Gainsbourg for a Bob Dylan biography.
The deals are not exactly firm but are expected to be finalized during the Cannes Film Festival.
The film will follow seven characters, each embodying a different aspect of Dylan’s life story and music. The film is the first biographical feature project to secure the approval of the pop culture icon.
The film is planning on a Fall start date but with a large list of names it may not be possible.
