Bob Dylan Movie on the way from Suspiria’s Luca Guadagnino
With Suspiria now a little over a week away from freaking out audiences across the world, the film’s helmer Luca Guadagnino (Call Me By Your Name, A Bigger Splash) is already busy prepping his next feature — and it’s about as far from Suspiria as one could possibly imagine. According to The Wrap, the Call Me By Your Name director’s next project is inspired by one of Bob Dylan’s most iconic albums, namely “Blood on the Tracks.”
Per the report, the film is being written by The Fisher King scribe Richard LaGravenese based on an idea by RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira, and will “revolve around the central themes of Dylan’s album, which included ‘Tangled Up in Blue,’ ‘Simple Twist of Fate,’ and ‘Shelter from the Storm.'”
“Bringing this project to life is a dream to me,” Teixeira said in a statement. “We worked for a very long time to find the right way into Bob Dylan’s work and having collaborators such as Luca and Richard are an absolute privilege.”
LaGravenese wrote a 180-page screenplay between April and July after a meeting with Guadagnino.
“When they’re repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them,” LaGravenese told The New Yorker. “And we dramatize what happens when you let your passions take over too much.”
“Blood on the Tracks” is the 15th studio album by American singer-songwriter Bob Dylan. It was released on January 20, 1975 by Columbia Records and reached No. 1 on the Billboard 200 charts and No. 4 on the UK Albums Chart. It remains one of Dylan’s best-selling studio releases and earned double-platinum U.S. certification by the Recording Industry Association of America (RIAA).
