The Rolling Stones

After delivering a fantastic documentary about actor turned producer iconic producer Robert Evans and his inspiring climb up the show business ladder with The Kid Stays in the Picture, director Brett Morgen is moving into the music realm for his next feature. Deadline has word that the filmmaker will be at the helm of a new untitled documentary following The Rolling Stones to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the British imported rock band which spawned all the way back in 1963. It will follow the band's inception from the beginning and will also have exclusive access to the Stones on the road, in the studio and more. Read on!

Morgen says, "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 also recently directed the historical documentary Chicago 10, a stylish and unique look at the eight anti-war protesters who were put on trial following the 1968 Democratic National Convention. Of course, The Stones have seen the big screen a couple times before, most recently with director Martin Scorsese shooting a concert documentary called Shine a Light for their tour of the same name. What are the chances that this will be in 3D? I'm not sure, but all those wrinkles in the third dimension don't sound flattering. Stay tuned.
