New Rolling Stones documentary announced
Crossfire Hurricane, a new Rolling Stones documentary directed by Brett Morgen, provides "a new perspective on the band's journey from blues-obsessed teenagers in the early 60’s to rock royalty. It’s all here in panoramic candour, from the Marquee Club to Hyde Park, from Altamont to ‘Exile, from club gigs to stadium extravaganzas."
The film in the UK will receive a theatrical release and can be seen in selected cinemas across the country in October. It will also be premiered on HBO in the USA and broadcast on BBC Two later in the year.
From the press release:
"As befits the first rock band to reach the 50-year milestone with their global stature now greater than ever, the film combines extensive historical footage, much of it widely unseen, with contemporary commentaries by Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. Period interviews, extensive live performance material and news archive give the production a truly kinetic aura and no-holds-barred approach. ‘Crossfire Hurricane’ has taken over a year to make and produce with the full cooperation of The Rolling Stones."
