Joe Mundo, Jamie Talbot and Mike Witherill are producing the film and Witherill is financing through his MJW Pictures.

The production will use feature previously unseen images from the time and rare concert performances from rock icons and is set to open in 2014 to coincide with Radio Caroline’s 50th birthday. Hans Fjellestad directs.

Radio Caroline is about the dramatic changing of an era and the music that powered it,” said Fjellestad. “This is exactly the kind of story I love to dig into and put up on the screen.”

“This film is very much about the music, but it’s also filled with fascinating and eccentric characters. These guys launched some of the most iconic bands in the world during a very repressive time,” added Mundo.
