My Chemical Romance to cover Bob Dylan for ‘Watchmen’ film

Gerrard Way planning track for superhero movie

My Chemical Romance are planning a “pretty freaking cool” Bob Dylan cover for a film adaptation of Alan Moore‘s graphic novel ‘Watchmen’.

The band’s version of ‘Desolation Row’ will close the superhero movie.

When speaking to MTV News, director Zack Synder explained: “(Gerard Way, MCR frontman) is a super-great guy, and an awesome musician, and so we’re trying to work with them right now to put together a song for the end titles.”

Synder added: “I’ve talked with [Way] and I’ve heard a little bit of some stuff that’s he’s done and it’s pretty freaking cool.”

The band interest in the adaptation, which come out net year, is not purely musical though.

“Honestly, he contacted me,” said Synder. “Just as a fan, to say like: ‘I hope the movie’s cool.’ And then we went, ‘Hey, maybe we can do something.’.”
