Rolling Stones - Rolling Stones To Release New Film Crossfire Hurricane

The Rolling Stones are to release a new documentary film called 'Crossfire Hurricane'.

The 'Paint it Black' group's incredible adventures from key periods in their career will be shown in the movie right from the early 1960s when they were blues-obsessed teenagers to the release of 1972's seminal 'Exile On Main Street' and up to the present day.

Band members Sir Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood will provide commentaries throughout the film - which will receive a theatrical release in selected cinemas around the UK in October - as will former Stones Mick Taylor and Bill Wyman, who was in the band from 1962 to 1993.

Director Brett Morgen insists the movie - which also documents the Redlands drug bust and the descent of Brian Jones into what Richards describes as ''bye-bye land'' - will take the audience on a ''visual rollercoaster ride'' through the main parts of the band's career.

He 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 rollercoaster ride.''

The movie features never-before-seen footage of the group as well as fresh insights from the band members themselves.

In one early interview shown in the film, Mick is asked what sets the group apart from others and he replies: ''A chemical reaction seems to have happened.''

Keith adds: ''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.''

'Crossfire Hurricane' will be released in November.
