Bob Dylan seminal 1975 album Blood On The Tracks is set to be turned into a film.

The album is often rumoured to be about the collapse of Dylan's marriage to his wife Sara, although he denies it. The right to the record have been purchased by Brazilian company RT Features, who are now planning to adapt it into an English-speaking film and are currently searching for a suitable director to front the project.

The company recently issued a statement on the news, saying:

"As longtime 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."

It has also been reported that Bob Dylan is currently recording a new studio album, working on new material at a studio in Los Angeles owned by US singer-songwriter Jackson Browne. Dylan's last release was the festive record, Christmas In The Heart, which was released in 2009.

Meanwhile, Dylan is preparing to headline this summer's Benicassim Festival. The folk singer will be joining the likes of the Stone Roses, Florence And The Machine and At The Drive-In. Other acts performing at the event, include New Order, Crystal Castles, The Vaccines and Noel Gallagher's High Flying Birds. Benicassim takes places on July the 12th-15th.
