"Factory Girl" to Face Legal Threat from Bob Dylan

Veteran musician Bob Dylan is planning to file a lawsuit against "Factory Girl", The Weinstein Co.'s biopic about Edie Sedgwick, for falsely implying him to be responsible for her death.

Though already been slated to hit theaters late this month on date 29, there is a possibility for "Factory Girl" to not appear on that day as famed musician Bob Dylan 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 Hayden Christensen's character Billy Quinn to him despite the film's producers' claim insisting Quinn of actually being a composite of Dylan, Mick Jagger, 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.
