More Films Based on Classic Albums

Updated: Dec 21, 2021

Suspiria director Luca Guadagnino says he plans to make a film based on the Bob Dylan album Blood on the Tracks. Movies based on classic LPs? It's a fertile new genre -- "as long as people don't expect a literal translation," Guadagnino says.

With that advice in mind, some ideas:

Carole King's Tapestry

Former Navy SEAL and separated dad Nick Taggart (Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson) must thwart North Korean terrorists aboard the International Space Station -- in time to attend his nine-year-old daughter's birthday.

Metallica's Master of Puppets

She grew up believing she's an orphan. Now Clara (Lily James) has four women arrive at her boarding school -- all claiming to be her biological mother!

Shania Twain's Come on Over

After an ultra-religious biker gang kills his family, Nicolas Cage embarks on a vengeful rampage to hunt down the group's charismatic leader.

Bon Jovi's Slippery When Wet

Bumbling meat inspector Harold Newt (Rowan Atkinson) befriends a cow that's headed for the slaughterhouse.

Meatloaf's Bat Out of Hell

Framed for murder, Rosella Banks (Tiffany Haddish) escapes via a time travel machine back to 1927, where she becomes romantically involved with the grandfather of the man she's accused of killing, setting a mindbending dilemma into motion.

Simon & Garfunkel's Parsley, Sage, Rosemary and Thyme

When down-on-his-luck philosophy professor Ray Garrett (Kevin Hart) meets free-spirited hippie Lula (Dakota Fanning), she takes him on a life-changing road trip across Ohio.

David Bowie's Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars

Timothée Chalamet (Call Me By Your Name) steps up as the newest addition to the Marvel Universe, joining The Avengers with his invincible superpower: the appearance of not giving a shit.
