New Stones Documentary To Air This Winter

HBO are making a new film about the rock veterans

Rolling Stone reports that the film will be directed by documentary filmmaker Brett Morgan, best known for The Kid Stays in the Picture.

"Nobody has put the story together as a narrative," Morgan told Rolling Stone in March. "We've been looking under every rock, going through their archives. It will be music never heard before, and I've conducted 50-plus hours of interviews so far. By the time we're done, they will be the most extensive group interviews they've ever done."

The as yet untitled movie will air on US TV in the winter and will undoubtedly get a wider released around the same time.

"This is all done as part of the band's 50th anniversary," said HBO President of Programming Michael Lombardo in a statement. "This documentary has the full involvement of the four current band members – Mick, Keith, Charlie and Ron – as well as the former band members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. We'll follow the band from their early club days through their arrival as the greatest band in the world."
