"Factory Girl" to Face Legal Threat from Bob Dylan

Though already been slated to hit theaters late this month on date 29, there is a possibility for "" to not appear on that day as famed musician is preparing to take legal action against the movie which can prevent it to come up on date scheduled.

What triggers Dylan to plan so apparently is because he considers that the flick, a biopic of mid-sixties 'it girl' Edie Sedgwick, falsely implies he is responsible for the socialite's death as people can easily relate 's character Billy Quinn to him despite the film's producers' claim insisting Quinn of actually being a composite of Dylan, , and Jim Morrison.

According to the New York Post's Page Six column, Dylan's lawyers have begun proceedings by demanding they see the film before any screenings are held. So far The Weinstein Co., the studio under which the picture was made, has not released any official statement concerning the matter.
