The film rights to Bob Dylan's 1975 album Blood on the Tracks have been picked up by a Brazilian production company, Entertainment Weekly reports. RT Features announced yesterday that they are planning to produce an English-language film based on the record, which includes classics such as "Simple Twist of Fate" and "Tangled Up in Blue."
"As longtime admirers of one of the greatest albums in the history of music, we feel privileged to be making this film," said RT Features executive Rodrigo Teixeira in a statement. "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."
Teixeira and RT Features have not revealed any timetable for the film's production. It could be years before an actual movie materializes from this deal.
