LOS ANGELES, May 4 (UPI) -- Colin Farrell has reportedly been replaced by "Brokeback Mountain" star Heath Ledger in Bob Dylan biopic, "I'm Not There," it was reported Thursday.

FoxNews.com reported director Todd Hayes was forced to make the last minute hire after Farrell dropped out of the project for undisclosed reasons.

The film -- which actually has six different actors playing the folk-rock icon -- is to start shooting this summer.

Joining Ledger in the cast are Cate Blanchett, Richard Gere, Christian Bale and Julianne Moore, sources told FoxNews.com columnist Roger Friedman.

More than a dozen classic Dylan songs will performed by acts such as the White Stripes and Aimee Mann.
