Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks” to Become a Film

Sadly "Chinese Democracy" Rights Remain Unsold

Just when you thought Hollywood has ran out of ideas…turns out it totally has. Today it was announced that Bob Dylan’s seminal 1975 album Blood on the Tracks is set to become a film.

The rights have been purchased by Brazilian company RT Features, who plan on making an English-speaking film. Says chief executive Rodrigo Teixeira in a statement, “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.”

The idea isn’t as completely bonkers as it seems. The album contains a strong narrative about heartbreak (see: blistering open track “Tangled Up in Blue”). Much of the material is rumored to be about Dylan’s break from his wife Sara—but the singer himself has denied those claims. Still, it seems doubtful that the fantastic insults of “Idiot Wind” will translate to the big screen.
