An exact release date has yet to be announced, and a source told Variety that such an announcement was still “months away.” However, Netflix did confirm a few details about the film, including its title, Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese, and that the famously interview-averse Dylan did speak on camera for the project .According to Variety
Dylan’s Rolling Thunder Revue tour took place between 1975 and 1976, and found the musician playing a series of theater shows with little advanced notice. Among the participants were Joan Baez, Roger McGuinn and Ramblin’ Jack Elliott, while one-off special guests included Ringo Starr, Patti Smith and Joni Mitchell.
Netflix also shared a short statement about the film: “Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese captures the troubled spirit of America in 1975 and the joyous music that Dylan performed during the fall of that year. Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream, Rolling Thunder is a one of a kind experience, from master filmmaker Martin Scorsese.”
