Director Luca Guadagnino says he's turning Bob Dylan’s 'Blood on the Tracks' into a film


Luca Guadagnino, director of Call Me by Your Name and Suspiria, has revealed that he is making Bob Dylan’s ‘Blood on the Tracks’ into a film.

The film, which is reportedly written by Richard LaGravenese, will tell “a multiyear story, set in the seventies, that [LaGravenese] and Guadagnino had invented, drawing on the album’s central themes.”

In a new interview with New Yorker, LaGravenese said: “When they’re repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them. And we dramatize what happens when you let your passions take over too much.”

LaGravenese, who was also a producer on Call Me by Your Name, has acquired the rights to the film.

Blood on the Tracks, the 15th studio album by Dylan, was released on January 20, 1975, and tells the story of his crumbling marriage to his first wife.
