A two minute clip from Todd Haynes’ forthcoming Bob Dylan biopic, I’m Not There, is now up on the website Youtube.
The clip features Cate Blanchett – one of six actors cast as Dylan in the film – meeting Allen Ginsberg, played by comic David Cross.
The other actors playing Dylan in the film are Heath Ledger, Richard Gere, Christian Bale, Ben Wishaw and Marcus Carl Franklin. Each actor embodies an aspect of Dylan during his career.
I’m Not There isn’t Haynes first music-related movie. In 1987, he directed Superstar: The Karen Carpenter Story with Barbie dolls, and in 1998 retold the story of Glam rock for Velvet Goldmine.
I’m Not There: Suppositions On A Film Concerning Dylan opens in the US in September.
