Martin Scorsese is directing a new Bob Dylan ‘Rolling Thunder Revue’ tour documentary

"Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream"

Martin Scorsese is directing a new concert documentary for Netflix that follows Bob Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue tour.

Variety reports that Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story will trace the famous 1975-1976 tour in which Dylan gathered an ensemble of collaborators and musicians including Joan Baez, T-Bone Burnett and Mick Ronson.

Netflix describes the new film as “part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream” but has not announced a release date. The film will include on-camera interviews with Dylan.

This isn’t the first time that Scorsese has worked on Dylan material. He directed the Grammy Award-winning documentary No Direction Home (2005) which detailed Dylan’s evolution between 1961 and 1966, “from folk singer to protest singer to ‘voice of a generation’ to rock star” [IMDB].

In October 2018, Suspiria and Call Me By Your Name director Luca Guadagnino said that he planned to adapt Dylan’s classic 1975 album ‘Blood On the Tracks’ into a film.
