Timothee Chalamet's Bob Dylan Biopic Not Happening Anytime Soon

The upcoming Bob Dylan biopic has been put on hold indefinitely.

Back in January it was announced that Timothee Chalamet had signed on to play the musician in the movie tentatively titled Going Electric, which would follow Bob as he rises in fame on his way to become a folk music icon.

Now in a new interview, cinematographer Phedon Papamichael says the movie isn’t happening anytime soon because the period-specific movie would be hard to do amid the ongoing health pandemic.

“I don’t think it’s dead, but it’s a tough one to pull off in a COVID-era because it’s all in small clubs with lots of extras in period costumes, so you’ve got lots of hair and makeup,” Phedon shared with Collider.

Just recently, one of Timothee‘s famous former co-stars FaceTimed him when he was in the middle of doing this!

“Popular entertainers are fine, there’s nothing the matter with that but as long as you know where you’re standing and what ground you’re on, many of them, they don’t know what they’re doing either,” he said during the conversation.

“Pop entertainment means nothing to me. Nothing. You know, Madonna’s good. Madonna’s good, she’s talented, she puts all kind of stuff together, she’s learned her thing…but it’s the kind of thing which takes years and years out of your life to be able to do. You’ve got to sacrifice a whole lot to do that. Sacrifice. If you want to make it big, you’ve got to sacrifice a whole lot. It’s all the same, it’s all the same.”

Madonna recently made headlines for posting this NSFW photo…

Kesha & Bob Dylan Reimagine Classic Songs for Same-Sex Couples

Kesha, Bob Dylan, and other artists have teamed up for a super cool reason!

They have all recorded new versions of some classic songs in hopes that same-sex couples will be able to use them as their wedding songs. The album, Universal Love: Wedding Songs Reimagined, is streaming now on Spotify.

“If you look at the history of pop music, love songs have predominantly come from one heterosexual perspective,” Tom Murphy, a co-producer of Universal Love, told the New York Times. “If we view music as something that brings people together, shouldn’t these popular songs be open to everyone?”

Dylan recorded the song “She’s Funny That Way” using male pronouns and Kesha does a new rendition of Janis Joplin‘s “I Need a Woman to Love.” Also featured at St. Vincent, Kele Okereke, Valerie June, and Benjamin Gibbard.
