As previously announced, Paramount will roll out the as-yet-untitled documentary in the US in late 2007. The film, which is centred around two New York concerts held last October during the Stones' A Bigger Bang tour, is currently in post-production.
Financed by Steve Bing's Shangri-La Entertainment and long-time Stones tour promoter Michael Cohl's Concert Promotions International, the documentary will feature extensive footage from the Stones' Beacon Theatre concerts alongside archive footage and backstage interviews.
Producers are Victoria Pearman, Michael Cohl, Zane Weiner and Steve Bing. Executive Producers are Stones members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, with Jane Rose as co-executive producer.
Fortissimo is handling international sales and co-chief Michael J. Werner negotiated the deal with Fox Filmed Entertainment chairman and CEO Jim Gianopulos and Fox senior vice president, head of acquisitions and co-productions Tony Safford.
Scorsese's team on the documentary includes Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson supervising a team of legenadary DoPs including Mitch Amundsen, Stuart Dryburgh, Robert Elswit, Ellen Kuras, Andrew Lesnie, Emmanuel Lubezki, Anastas Michos, Declan Quinn and John Toll. It is being edited by David Tedeschi.
