Rolling Stones announce career-spanning 50th anniversary documentary
While they won't be hitting the road in celebration of their fiftieth anniversary until next year, The Rolling Stones will give fans the net best thing in the mean time: A massive, career-spanning documentary.
So far untitled, it will be the first film to chronicle the legendary band's entire epic history, from their British Invasion roots in 1962, their rise to the top, the tragic death of founding member Brian Jones, and the Stones' reign as -- what has to be -- the longest-lasting band in rock history. Band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will all participate.
The film will include rare and never-before-seen footage of the band in performance and off stage.
The doc will arrive in September as part of the group's multimedia 50th anniversary celebrations. The Stones will exec produce, with Victoria Pearman and Morgan Neville producing.
Oscar nominee Brett Morgen ("The Kid Stays in the Picture") will direct.
“For anyone who wants to experience the band, this is the film that will defy convention and create a sonic tapestry to transport viewers into the world of the Rolling Stones,” Morgen said in a press release, “The film will deliver the original, bold, sexy and dangerous flavor of the iconic rock band.”
The as-yet-untitled film will be released through Eagle Rock Entertainment.
The Stones have been the subject of concert films before, notably 1970's "Gimme Shelter," 1982's "Let's Spend the Night Together" and Martin Scorsese's 2008 "Shine a Light," but this will be the first doc recounting their story.
