LOS ANGELES (AP) - How many roads must a man walk down before Martin Scorsese makes a movie about him?
The answer, my friend, is in the tentatively titled ``Bob Dylan Anthology Project,'' a biography about the iconic folk singer directed by the ``Gangs of New York'' filmmaker.
The film, planned for release in 2005, will chronicle Dylan's 1963 breakthrough and the cultural and political influence of his music, Scorsese and his producing partners said Tuesday.
``I've admired and enjoyed his many musical transformations,'' Scorsese said in a statement. ``For me, there is no other musical artist who weaves his influences so densely to create something so personal and unique.''
In addition to playing in some theaters, the movie will also be broadcast on PBS in the United States and the BBC in the United Kingdom.
Dylan also acts and sings in the upcoming fictional drama ``Masked and Anonymous,'' set to debut July 25.
