Bob Dylan, Son Jesse Go to the Movies
Father and son Bob and Jesse Dylan are both going Hollywood, though in separate projects. The elder Dylan, 61, has composed a seven-minute song called "Crossing Over the Green Mountain" for "Gods and Generals," a Civil War drama scheduled for release by Warner Bros. in December, reports Reuters. (Warner Bros., like PEOPLE, is part of AOL Time Warner.) He apparently will not appear in the film. Last year, Dylan won the Best Song Oscar for "Things Have Changed," from the Michael Douglas movie "Wonder Boys." The news service says he recently finished shooting a starring role as a washed-up musician in "Masked & Anonymous," a feature film costarring Penelope Cruz, Angela Bassett, Christian Slater and Jessica Lange, among others -- and his first since 1987's ill-received "Hearts of Fire." As for Jesse, age unreported, unlike his father and younger brother, 31-year-old Jakob, frontman of the Grammy-winning Wallflowers, he's a director. Last year he made his debut with a low-budget marijuana comedy called "How High," starring rappers Method Man and Redman. Now, reports Variety, he's set to direct "American Pie 3," for which Jason Biggs, Alyson Hannigan and Eugene Levy are secured to reprise their roles. Filming is due to begin in January for an August 2003 release.
