New Stones rockumentary in the pipeline

Martin Scorsese has announced that he will be filming The Rolliing Stones while they are on the road.

The legendary director has been rumoured to be working on a documentary about the Stones for some time.

The Rolling Stones are currently on the road in the U.S., touring their latest release A Bigger Bang. Scorsese will film the Stones’ upcoming New York City gigs at The Beacon Theatre between October 29 and 31.

It is not clear if the documentary will encompass the entire history of The Rolling Stones or just their current tour.

Scorsese directed 2005’s acclaimed Bob Dylan documentary ‘No Direction Home’.

The Rolling Stones have only ever made one career retrospective film, 1989’s ’25X5′.
