Luca Guadagnino has announced plans to make a movie based on Bob Dylan‘s 1975 record, Blood on the Tracks.
Guadagnino, who directed the Oscar-nominated film Call Me By Your Name, told The New Yorker that he agreed to take up the project with Richard LaGravenese as its screenwriter.
“LaGravenese cleared his schedule and, between April and July, hunkered down to produce a hundred-and-eighty-eight-page screenplay following characters through a multiyear story, set in the seventies, that he and Guadagnino had invented, drawing on the album’s central themes,” The New Yorker quoted Guadagnino as saying.
“When they’re repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them,” LaGravenese said of the characters.
Meanwhile, Dylan is set to release a box set titled More Blood, More Tracks, a six-disc deep-dive into the album’s creation, on November 2.
