Bob Dylan Classic To Be Made Into A Movie
(Gibson) A film treatment is planned for one of Bob Dylan's most acclaimed albums, Entertainment Weekly has reported. The movie rights for Blood on the Tracks, the 1975 album Dylan made as his marriage to Sara Lownds was crumbling, has been purchased by Brazil-based production company RT Features. Company executives Rodrigo Teixeira and Fernando Loureiro said they will produce an English-language feature film based on the emotionally charged album, which includes such classic Dylan songs as "Tangled Up in Blue" and "Simple Twist of Fate."
"As long time admirers of one of the greatest albums in the history of music, we feel privileged to be making this film," said Teixeira, in a prepared statement. "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."
No timetable has been set for the film's production. Teixera and Loureiro added that they hope to find a director "with the unique vision to fulfill on screen what Dylan accomplished in the studio." more on this story
