BOB DYLAN'S 'BLOOD ON THE TRACKS' COMING TO THE BIG SCREEN

4/6/2012

Bob Dylan's 1975 chart-topping album Blood On The Tracks will be the basis of an upcoming motion picture, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Brazil-based international production banner RT Features has licensed the rights to Dylan's groundbreaking and personal set, with the company's Rodrigo Teixeira and Fernando Loureiroproducing the English-language picture. The pair is currently searching for a director for the project "with the unique vision to fulfill on-screen what Dylan accomplished in the studio with such well-known songs 'Tangled Up In Blue,' 'Simple Twist Of Fate' and 'Shelter From The Storm.'" No shoot date has been announced for the film, and it is unclear what -- if any -- involvement Dylan will have in the movie.

Teixeira explained: "As longtime admirers of one of the greatest albums in the history of music, we feel privileged to be making this film. Our goal is to work with a filmmaker who can create a classic drama with characters and an environment that capture the feelings that the album inspires in all fans."

  • We asked Rolling Stone associate editor, and Dylan connoisseur, Austin Scaggs -- the son of the legendary Boz Scaggs -- what exactly makes Blood On The Tracks, perhaps, the most original album in Dylan's catalogue: "Obviously, Blood On The Tracks is totally the breakup of the marriage -- the autobiography. Y'know, you can listen to any of those Blood On The Tracks songs and really be able to define them and put them into context and know where they're coming from. Maybe there's something about that?"
  • Bob Dylan kicks off his next set of dates on April 15th in Rio De Jeneiro.
