Academy Award® Nominee Richard LaGravenese to Pen the Classic Drama

RT Features announced on October 17 that they are re-teaming with Academy Award® Nominee Luca Guadagnino on Bob Dylan’s 1975 Album adaptation "Blood on the Tracks," following their recent collaboration on Academy Award® Winning "Call Me by Your Name."

Academy Award® Nominee Richard LaGravenese will pen the script to the classic drama, which is based on an idea by RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira, who is producing with Guadagnino.

RT’s Sophie Mas and Lourenço Sant' Anna are executive producing alongside Marco Morabito.

“Blood on the Tracks” is Dylan’s 15th studio album, released by Columbia Records in 1975 and acclaimed as one of his greatest.

The platinum selling record, which contains songs including: “Tangled Up in Blue,” “Simple Twist of Fate” and “Shelter from the Storm” is ranked by Rolling Stone as the 16th greatest album of all time.
RT Features’ Rodrigo Teixeira said, “Bringing this project to life is a dream to me.  We worked for a very long time to find the right way into Bob Dylan’s work and having collaborators such as Luca and Richard are an absolute privilege.”
Guadagnino most recently directed "Suspiria," the highly anticipated remake of Dario Argento’s thriller starring Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton for Amazon Studios, which made its World Premiere at the Venice Film Festival.  He was nominated for an Academy Award® for "Call Me by Your Name" and previously directed lauded features such as "I Am Love," "A Bigger Splash" and "The Protagonists."

LaGravenese wrote “Behind the Candalabra,” which won eleven Primetime Emmy Awards and also was nominated for an Academy Award® for Best Screenplay for "The Fisher King."

RT Features produced Guadagnino’s "Call Me by Your Name." They are currently in post-production on Robert Eggers’ "The Lighthouse," the renowned filmmaker’s eagerly anticipated follow-up to "The Witch," starring Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe with A24 and New Regency and James Gray’s Ad Astra starring Brad Pitt for Fox.

Guadagnino is represented by WME and LaGravenese and RT Features by CAA.
