Robert Pattinson May Play Levon Helm in a New Film
Twilight and Harry Potter star Robert Pattinson may play Levon Helm in a new movie about The Band, according to a recent article in Indiewire. The article points to a recent interview where Pattinson says, “I’m going to do a movie about The Band, the one that played with [Bob] Dylan. [It’s] a beautiful script about the nature of songwriting.” Helm—an actor himself—would have turned 72 tomorrow. Members of The Levon Helm Band will honor his legacy with a special ramble at his Woodstock, NY-area barn.
