A film company in Brazil has acquired the rights to turn Bob Dylan's 15th album 'Blood On The Tracks' into a motion picture.

RT Films says it has bought film rights to the 1975 Dylan classic and will begin shooting the movie in the UK soon.

Dylan said in his 2004 memoir 'Chronicles Volume 1' that the album was inspired by the short stories of Anton Chekhov but at the time of release it was thought that the lyrics were about the personal break-up with wife Sara he was going through at the time.

In a radio interview years later Dylan said 'A lot of people tell me they enjoy that album. It's hard for me to relate to that. I mean, it, you know, people enjoying that type of pain, you know?'

In a statement, Rordigo Teixeira of RT Films said, 'As long time admirers of one of the greatest albums in the history of music, we feel privileged to be making this film'.
'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.'
