The Answer (To A Blood On The Tracks Film Adaptation) Is Blowin' In The Wind
There's no indication if that means the producers intend to make a biopic about Dylan's life during the making of the original album, divorcing his wife, or some other melodrama that plays out a similar story broken into chapters with "Fraser"-ian title cards like "Tangled Up In Blue" and "A Simple Twist of Fate." At this point we don't even know if the songs themselves will make up the soundtrack, but as long as they do not do a cover album ala Walk the Line that might be a good idea. Otherwise, why bother getting the rights to the album at all? Whatever Blood on the Tracks is going to be, I can't help but feel like Jim Jarmusch should be involved. But Bob Dylan-inspired movies tend to gestate for quite a while, if they even happen, so we might not hear about this project again for a while.
At least, we can always hope.
Rob Payne also writes the comic The Unstoppable Force, tweets on the Twitter @RobOfWar, and his ware can be purchased here (if you're into that sort of thing). He even named a story arc after Blood on the Tracks, even though it has less to do with marital strife and more to do with murderous magicians and werewolves.
