Bob Dylan Album To Become Movie
0
From the classic western "Pat Garrett & Billy The Kid" to the painful ego-trip that was "Masked And Anonymous", Bob Dylan has a pretty extensive, if varied, movie resume for a rock star. But in a career that netted him a Best Song Oscar for his work on "Wonder Boys", Dylan has yet to see one of his albums adapted for the silver screen - until now. Dylan's "Blood On The Tracks" will be turned into a feature length film from Brazilian-based RT Features. "Blood On The Tracks" is widely considered to be one of the greatest rock albums of all time, and is chock-full of iconic songs as "Shelter From The Storm" and "Simple Twist Of Fate", but there's not a storyline of which to speak. It has been widely speculated that the songs of love and loss that make up the 1975 album were inspired by Dylan's separation from his then-wife Sara Dylan, although the singer-songwriter has said that "Blood On The Tracks" is not autobiographical. RT Features' Rodrigo Teixeira and Fernando Loureiro will produce the English-language film. The company said it will look for a director with the "unique vision" to translate the album to screen. Thanks for the report to Jam.Canoe.ca.

    That movie has already been made. Lots of times. Just search for it on Google, but make sure that safe search is turned off

    It's about 98.99% certain Blood on the Tracks is autobiographical, Bob just likes to lie to reporters who ask stupid questions. And just generally confuse people for his enjoyment

    Haven't people been trying to make "Lily, Rosemary, and the Jack of hearts" from this album into a movie since the album came out?
