He collaborates with Scorsese on The Long Play
Rolling Stone Mick Jagger is set to collaborate with Martin Scorsese once again – on a new rock’n’roll film project entitled The Long Play.
Scorsese has described his idea for the film as a “rock’n’roll epic” and the script has been written by (US magazine) Rolling Stone writer Rich Cohen as well as Matthew Reiss.
The film synopsis follows two music business friends from the early days of R’n’B to contemporary hip hop.
Mick Jagger is already working with Scorcese on the Rolling Stones docufilm, United Stones, which is now in post-production. The Oscar-winning director followed the group on their A Bigger Bang Tour in the States last year.
Jagger has been busy lately producing various projects; one of which airs tonight on US station ABC. Jagger has produced and is the celebrity subject of a new comedy show, “Knights of Prosperity.” Blue-collar workers plan to rob Jagger’s ‘$52 million” apartment over the course of six-weeks.
The Stones are also working on the songs and music to soundtrack a new feature length animation film about a single mother living in New York City. “Ruby Tuesday” is expected to be completed in 2008.
