Ledger as Dylan in movie?

After working together in "Brokeback Mountain," Oscar-nominated couple Heath Ledger and Michelle Williams have joined the all-star cast of the Bob Dylan movie "I'm Not There."

Ledger, who replaces Colin Farrell, would play one of seven actors representing the different aspects of Dylan's life story and music. Williams is set as Coco Rivington, a model with whom an androgynous folk star (Cate Blanchett) is taken. Also cast are Christian Bale, Julianne Moore and Richard Gere.

The film's co-writer/director Todd Haynes ("Velvet Goldmine") and Killer Films principal Christine Vachon persuaded Dylan to assign them the rights to his life story and music two years ago. The first biographical screenplay about Dylan is set to go before the cameras in July in Montreal.

Ledger and Williams received Oscar nominations this year for their performances in
Ang Lee's "Brokeback Mountain."

I bloody love Todd Haynes, and dislike every single actor/tress that is mentioned here. Can Haynes alone save the movie for me?
