The Stone Roses documentary Made Of Stone is to open nationwide on June 5, it has been confirmed.
The film was made by This Is England director Shane Meadows and goes behind the scenes on the Manchester band's 2012 reunion, from the early stages to their celebratory hometown gigs at Heaton Park. The event will be satellite-linked to 100 cinemas as part of nationwide preview screenings running concurrently with the premiere launch, with tickets for both the host venue and the satellite-linked cinemas made available to the public.
Shane Meadows' documentary on The Stone Roses could be ready in time for Christmas.
Speaking to the BBC ahead of the band's three comeback gigs last weekend in Manchester's Heaton park, the film's producer Mark Herbert (This Is England), said of the as yet untitled project: "I was hoping to get it out by Christmas. But over this weekend alone we were going to shoot 180 to 200 hours of footage. We've got 35 cameras out there – I feel like I'm making the Titanic at the moment. I want to get it out by Christmas. That's the dream."
