Even though the Rolling Stones recently stated there wouldn’t be a 50th anniversary tour for this year, the legendary British rock group will still celebrate the achievement in the forms of other media releases. Following Thames & Hudson’s official, authorized photo book titled The Rolling Stones: 50 on July 12, this September, Eagle Rock Entertainment will release a new documentary tracing the Rolling Stones’ constant evolution since 1963.
Brett Morgen will direct the as of yet-unnamed film, which will feature never-before-seen, uncensored footage of the band on the road and in the studio recovered from historical archives and personal documents. Morgen, who has also directed such films as The Kid Stays In The Picture and an ESPN 30 For 30 documentary stated, “This is the film that will defy convention and create a sonic tapestry to transport viewers into the world of the Rolling Stones.”
He continued, “The film will deliver the original, bold, sexy and dangerous flavor of the iconic rock band.”
