The director of Oscar-nominated movie Call Me By Your Name is pulling on Bob Dylan for cinematic inspiration.
In an interview with The New Yorker, Luca Guadagnino stated that a producer on Call Me By Your Name acquired the movie rights to Bob Dylan's 1975 report, Blood on the Tracks, and requested the director if he wished to make a film primarily based off of it. Guadagnino agreed, provided that Richard LaGravenese wrote it.

"LaGravenese cleared his schedule and, between April and July, hunkered down to provide a hundred-and-eighty-eight-page screenplay following characters by a multiyear story, set within the seventies, that he and Guadagnino had invented, drawing on the album’s central themes. 'When they’re repressing, we dramatize the repression, and what that does to them,' LaGravenese says. 'And we dramatize what occurs once you let your passions take over an excessive amount of.'"
While no additional info on the movie has been revealed, Dylan will probably be releasing a field set of each take from the report, titled More Blood, More Tracks, out Nov. 2.
