Rolling Stones' Exile On Main Street album to become a film

The Rolling Stones are to become the subject of a new film based around Robert Greenfield’s 2008 book Exile On Main Street: A Season In Hell With The Rolling Stones.

According to Deadline.com, Richard Branson will produce the film, which is set in the South of France during summer 1971, when the Stones recorded their album, Exile On Main Street.

The last time the Stones exploits were dramatised on film was in 2005, in Stoned, about the suspicious circumstances surrounding the death of the band's former guitarist Brian Jones in 1969.

In September, the Stones will release a career-spanning documentary to coincide with their 50th anniversary.
