To help celebrate their 50th anniversary this year, the Rolling Stones are planning an upcoming documentary. Brett Morgen, who directedThe Kid Stays in the Picture, has been tapped for the project, which is set to be finished by September and will feature never-before-seen footage.
"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 statement. "The film will deliver the original, bold, sexy and dangerous flavor of the iconic rock band."
Morgen has said that in addition to telling the bands story as a narrative, it wil include interviews and music that has never been made public.
The band is serving as executive producers so don’t expect anything too controversial. "He told me 80 percent of the footage has never been seen before, which amazes me," Keith Richards told Rolling Stone. "I didn’t know there was that much around."
