Good news, Rolling Stones fans: not only is the half-century-old band playing four shows this November, but there’s also a new film about the group in the works. Crossfire Hurricane is set to premier in UK theaters this October before making its way to HBO and BBC Two later in the year.
Timed to coincide with the band’s 50th birthday this year, the film is a Stones-approved documentary that explores their rise from the very beginning. Director Brett Morgan got his hands on never-before-seen footage and rare interviews, and in a statement he had this to say:
“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.”
