Bob Dylan’s “Blood on the Tracks” Album Getting a Whole Movie Made by “Call Me By Your Name” Director


I really wanted to call this story “Mumble Me By Your Name.”

Luca Guadagnini, the man who made “Call Me By Your Name,” is set to make a new film based on Bob Dylan’s towering 1975 classic album, “Blood on the Tracks.”

Oscar Nominee Richard LaGravenese will pen the script to the classic drama, which is based on an idea by RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira, who is producing with Guadagnino.  RT’s Sophie Mas and Lourenço Sant’ Anna are executive producing alongside Marco Morabito. 

“Blood on the Tracks,” from 1975, has no plot per se, so whatever story they’ve come up with will have to somehow make sense. The great songs on it include “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Shelter from the Storm,” “Idiot Wind,” “You’re Gonna Make Me Lonesome When You Go,” among others.

The album is about to get an anniversary box set pressing from Sony/Legacy, so news of the movie is either coincidental or planned.

Guadagnini is about to release his remake of the horror film, “Suspiria.”

It’s not yet unknown if this will be tailored for “Call Me” stars Timothee Chalamet and Armie Hammer. There’s no fruit in the lyrics to “Blood on the Tracks,” but produce departments are being warned.
