Luca Guadagnino to direct film based on Bob Dylan's album16.10.2018

Luca Guadagnino is ready to start shooting his next film. After garnering international acclaim with Call Me By Your Name and fresh off completing work on his upcoming remake of Suspiria, the director has finally selected his next project—settling on a cinematic adaptation of Bob Dylan’s 1975 LP, Blood on the Tracks

The screenplay will be written by Richard LaGravenese, known for his work on The Fisher King and The Horse Whisperer. Set in the 1970s, the story will draw on the album’s central themes. In an interview with The New Yorker, Guadagnino commented on his latest project, saying the film will explore what happens when artists are “repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them (…) And we dramatize what happens when you let your passions take over too much.” 

Blood on the Tracks is Bob Dylan’s fifteenth studio album, hailed by many critics as one of his most personal efforts. Most of the lyrics directly explore the breakup of the singer-songwriter’s marriage to his wife, Sara. The album also drew inspiration from the painting lessons that the artist took when working on the record.
