It takes a village to play Bob Dylan. Or so it would appear looking at the potential cast for director Todd Haynes' I'm Not There, an unusual picture in which seven different characters would represent portions of the legendary folk singer's life. Variety reports that Cate Blanchett, Colin Farrell, Adrien Brody, Richard Gere, Julianne Moore, and Charlotte Gainsbourg are among the actors about to sign on for the movie, which has received Dylan's stamp of approval.

The all-star cast is awaiting final word on the film's financing; it had been on Paramount Pictures' schedule, but was shelved after an executive shuffle at the studio. Haynes (Far From Heaven, Velvet Goldmine) has reportedly been working on the project for several years.
