So it is not surprising that there are already some other movies about her legacy, either because of the I’m Not There of 2007 that brought together several actors playing the musician or in a residual way but in the form of a tribute in Inside Llewyn Davis of the Coen brothers. Now, the Dylan story will return to the big screen under the gaze of filmmaker James Mangold and with Timothée Chalamet as the protagonist. However, today’s news is that Benedict Cumberbatch has joined the production to play Pete Seeger.

Pete Seeger was a folk singer and artist who helped inspire the artist that would become Bob Dylan. His music and activism was what kept Dylan in your own search for music and in turn, was one of the first sponsors of Dylan and his work. So, in reality, they maintained a student/teacher relationship that would end up forging part of the character of what is today a musical phenomenon at the height of any other industry totem on the American continent.

The future tape thus forms a very powerful casting with the choices of Chalamet and Cumberbatch as Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger. Also in Monica Barbaro women’s camp will play Joan Baez and Elle Fanning will play a fictional lover of Dylan in the 60s. It will be somewhat difficult for a single feature film to trace the figure of a legend like the singer-songwriter, who has gone through numerous changes throughout his career. From a religious era to its most nostalgic aspect. Although it seems quite clear that the narrative will try to simply reflect the inspirations of a young Dylan and all those moments that influenced him to become what we all know today. Question that is structured in the casting itself with the choice of a young figure like the actor of Call me by your name and the presence of Cumberbatch as Pete Seeger.
