Dylan Movie To Get Cover Treatment By Ny Times Magazine

The trade publication Editor & Publisher has disclosed many of the details of next Sunday's cover story in The New York Times Magazine about I'm Not There, in which six actors play Bob Dylan. The article, titled "This Is Not a Bob Dylan Movie," quotes Cate Blanchett, who plays one of the Dylans as saying, "I don't know that it does make sense. ... I don't think the film even strives to make sense, in a way." Producer Harvey Weinstein, who says in the article that he will get Blanchett an Oscar nomination or kill himself, also remarks, "Nothing's ever been attempted like this before [in film]. ... There are scenes and episodes that are amongst the best filmmaking that has taken place in American film. ... There are other sections that are going to be a little bumpy." Speaking at the New York Film Festival Tuesday night, director Todd Haynes was asked about his decision to cast Blanchett as one of the Dylans. According to the online Radar magazine, he replied, "For all the ways that Dylan is associated as a guy's artist or a heterosexual kind of icon, his flamboyance and foppery during that time were profound, and it must have been a freaker for people at the time." The film is due to open on November 21.
