Bob Dylan’s legendary 1975 record, ‘Blood on the Tracks’ is to be made into a film by Call Me by Your Name and Suspiria director Luca Guadagino.
Speaking to The New Yorker, the filmmaker revealed that he is busy focusing on an adaptation of the iconic Dylan record. An album that is arguably one of the best of the singer’s career. The NME reports the film is written by Richard LaGravenese, the film will tell “a multiyear story, set in the seventies, that [LaGravenese] and Guadagnino had invented, drawing on the album’s central themes.”
LaGravenese discussed the film’s characters. “When they’re repressing, we dramatise the repression, and what that does to them. And we dramatise what happens when you let your passions take over too much,” he concluded.
The news comes as a new ‘Blood On The Tracks’ box set release called ‘More Blood, More Tracks’ which will have every existing take from Dylan’s recording of the record. That’s due for release on November 2nd.
Guadagnino has just finished his latest film, a remake of the excellent horror Suspiria. The film has been scored by Radiohead frontman Thom Yorke and is due on November 16th.
