Disney’s Searchlight Pictures is developing a new Bob Dylan biopic film called “A Complete Unknown”, which is going to star Elle Fanning, Timothée Chalamet and Monica Barbaro.

“A Complete Unknown” is set to begin filming later this summer in New York, and it is going to be directed by James Mangold, who has previously directed “Logan”, “Ford Vs Ferrari”, and the upcoming Indiana Jones film.

The film tells the story of a young Bob Dylan, who will be played by Timothée Chalamet, who shakes up the music world in 1965, as he pivots to performing with an electric guitar for the first time.    Elle Fanning is going to be playing the role of Dylan’s early ’60s love interest, university student and artist Sylvie Russo.  Elle has previously starred in Disney’s “Maleficent” films and the Hulu Original series, “The Great”/

According to Deadline, the script has been written by Jay Cocks, who has previously worked on “Gangs Of New York”, and James Mangold is handling the revisions.  Bob Dylan’s longtime manager Jeff Rosen will produce alongside Veritas Entertainment Group’s Bob Bookman, Alan Gasmer and Peter Jaysen, Automatik’s Fred Berger, The Picture Company’s Alex Heineman, and Mangold.  Other executive producers include Bob Dylan, as well as Automatik’s Brian Kavanaugh-Jones and Andrew Rona.
