American actor Edward Norton is set to replace British actor Benedict Cumberbatch as Pete Seeger in the upcoming Bob Dylan biopic, A Complete Unknown.
According to Deadline, Cumberbatch was replaced by Norton due to scheduling conflicts.
A Complete Unknown is being directed by James Mangold, while the movie stars Timothee Chalamet as Dylan and Elle Fanning will play the role of Sylvie Russo. The film will be heading into production in New York this March. The cast also includes Monica Barbaro and Woody Guthrie.
Seeger, who died in 2014, had a significant impact on Dylan’s musical upbringing, having a profound influence on Dylan from the perspectives of both music and activism.
