Bob Dylan and Martin Scorsese team up for Netflix documentary
Bob Dylan is one of the world's greatest poets and songwriters, known for equal mastery in lyrics that permeate the scorn and sweetness in love, and are sharp social commentaries on injustice.
Rumors were circulating that a documentary would be made on Dylan's star-studded Rolling Thunder Revue tour of 1975-76.
Title announced, but release date seems to be under wraps
The upcoming documentary has been titled Rolling Thunder Revue: A Bob Dylan Story by Martin Scorsese.
While some sources claim the documentary could arrive on Netflix around early spring, others say the documentary has months before it arrives.
It is expected to include interviews from the camera shy Dylan himself, along with other stars who were part of the acclaimed tour.
Description: 'Part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream'

It has been hyped as being a 'part documentary, part concert film, part fever dream' from the acclaimed director Scorsese who also made the 2005 film on the Nobel prize winner, titled No Direction Home.
