Rolling Stones’ Making Of ‘Exile On Main Street’ To Be Featured In New Biopic

first_imgHeralded as one of the best Rolling Stones albums, let alone one of the great rock n’ roll albums of all time, Exile On Main Street will get a new life as the focus of a new biopic film. Titled Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell With the Rolling Stones, the band recorded the album in a small bunker-like studio before its big release in 1972.The film will be directed by Andy Goddard, who has worked on Downton Abbey, and the storyline will largely follow Robert Greenfield’s 2008 book of the same title. Rights to the book were purchased by Virgin in 2012, and studios are casting the roles of Mick Jagger and Keith Richards right now.While Exile probably won’t be released until 2017, it’s interesting to think about how such an iconic album was created. With tracks like “Sweet Virginia,” “Tumblin’ Dice,” “Lovin’ Cup” and more, there’s no shortage of great music to choose from for the Exile On Main Street film.[H/T Deadline]last_img
