Timothee Chalamet in Talks to Star as Bob Dylan in New Biopic

The film has been described as about, “Dylan as he rises in fame on his way to become a folk music icon.”

The last film to dramatize Dylan’s life, albeit in highly surreal fashion, was 2007’s “I’m Not There,” a feature from Todd Haynes that was more fantasia than biopic, with six actors playing different facets of Dylan’s public persona: Christian Bale, Cate Blanchett, Marcus Carl Franklin, Richard Gere, Heath Ledger, and Ben Whishaw.
