Brazilian-based film company RT Features has acquired the rights
to make a film adaptation of the Bob Dylan's iconic album 'Blood On
After the successes of Martin Scorsese's brilliant documentary
'No Direction Home' and Todd Haynes oddball biopic 'I'm Not There'
, producers Rodgrigo Teixeira and Fernandy Loureiro have begun the
hunt to find a director for their English-language feature film
after buying rights from Grey Water Park Prods.
Dylan's 15th studio album, Blood on the Tracks was released by
Columbia Records in January 1975. Certified Double Platinum in the
US and Gold in the UK, the album topped the Billboard 200 chart for
two weeks following its release and Rolling Stone ranked the album
within the Top 20 of all-time.
Biographers have concluded the songs stemmed from personal
turmoil at the time, including his separation from his third
wife Sara. But Dylan himself once told an interviewer
that he found it hard to fathom the album's popularity, since it
implied "enjoying that type of pain," but he's also denied that
it's in any way autobiographical. In his typically gnomic
autobiography, he claims the songs are all inspired by
Anton Chekhov's short stories.
Producers Rodrigo Teixeira and Fernando Loureiro don't seem to
be looking to Chekhov, but say, "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. As
long-time admirers of one of the greatest albums in the history of
music, we feel privileged to be making this film."
