The Rolling Stones to release new film, Crossfire Hurricane

The Rolling Stones have announced details of a new documentary titled Crossfire Hurricane.

Directed by Brett Morgen, the film documents the band's career from their early road trips and gigs in the 1960s, via the release of 1972's Exile On Main Street right up to present day.

It will also feature stacks of unseen footage of the band, including commentaries from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor. In one early interview when asked what sets the Rolling Stones apart from other bands, Jagger says: " A chemical reaction seems to have happened." Richards added: "You can't really stop the Rolling Stones, you know when that sort of avalanche is facing you, you just get out of the way."

Director Brett Morgen said: “Crossfire Hurricane invites the audience to experience firsthand the Stones' nearly mythical journey from outsiders to rock and roll royalty. This is not an academic history lesson. Crossfire Hurricane allows the viewer to experience the Stones' journey from a unique vantage point. It's an aural and visual roller coaster ride.”

Crossfire Hurricane will premiere in cinemas in October and will go on general release in November.
