Ledger replaces Farrell in Dylan film

HeathLedger.jpgHeath Ledger is replacing Colin Farrell in the Bob Dylan movie I'm Not There. This is the biographical film which will portray six different stages of his life and played by six different actors. Ledger will also perform next to Michelle Williams who has also been signed.

From Production Weekly through Coming Soon are the list of the other Bob Dylans...

The others will be Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Christian Bale and Ben Wishaw. One more Dylan is still to be cast. Also starring are Julianne Moore and Charlotte Gainsbourg. The film starts shooting in Montreal this July.

An interesting and very strong cast indeed. Originally I wondered how Farrell fitted in there, but now the list looks a lot smoother and equally matched. It also sounds like a really good attempt at something original.



I am sure somewhere out there Morbius is bouncing with glee and had I been living close by he would buy me a drink! *winks*

This is a biopic I would prolly like to see.

I am always happy to buy you a drink Simone as your insightful and well thought out, intelligent comments are always a joy to read on this forum. You always seem to be able to put into words the thoughts I am thinking but unable to express. And I mean that most sincerely. ;-)

As for the Farrell thing. Well yes your right, I can stand the idea of him being in this movie. Then again I can stand the idea of him being in any movie!

That aside, to be honest, I am not too excited about this movie. As you know I am a big Dylan fan but I have to acknowledge that the words "Dylan" and "Good Movie" do not go together. Let's not mention "Hearts of Fire" and "Masked and Annonymous" too loudly here. Then again Dylan isn't actually acting in this movie so who knows...

If I didnt know you too well, I knew you would be lying. I wonder if you kept a straight face just typing the first paragraph of this last post of yours. LOLOLOL

And you've heard about Hayden Christensen playing a Bob Dylan character of sorts in that Factory Girl movie right?

Yes, I seem to recall seeing it somewhere.

Now that one with Christensen, I would be very interested to see.

Ledger "seems" to have the potential to be a promising actor.

this will surely give him a chance to prove that.
