Who is Bob Dylan? Excellent question. Searchlight Photographs is slated to deliver a new movie about that time Dylan picked up an electrical at the Newport Folks Competition. Cast to engage in 1965 Dylan? Timothée Chalamet, the 24-calendar year-old who’s before long to star in a Dune remake. We like that select wonderful.

“I’d like to see Girl Gaga engage in young Bob Dylan. She’s often fascinated me with what a chameleon she can be on digital camera. And she undoubtedly has the vocal expertise to have the purpose.”—Maribeth Romslo, filmmaker

Tom Cruise—in a fluffy wig and best hat, placing on his Ray-Bans all neat, accomplishing Dylan’s crusty-old-man voice—would be great.” —Isaac Gale, musician, filmmaker


“Remember Bob Dylan’s Christmas album? I consider it was in 2010 or so. I’m contemplating of the old-Jewish-fart-doesn’t-give-a-fuck-in-the-Santa-hat Dylan singing “Must Be Santa.” I don’t know, bare Geoffrey Hurry?” —Nicole Brending, filmmaker
