The film, produced by the Rolling Stones, Shangri-La Entertainment and Concert Productions International and to be distributed by Paramount in North America, chronicles a series of performances from the rock legends' 'A Bigger Bang' tour. Fortissimo has international rights.
It's the second time the Stones will appear in IMAX following 1992's Rolling Stones Live At The Max, an assemblage of performances shot on IMAX cameras during their 'Steel Wheels' world tour.
Said Scorsese in a statement, 'I am very pleased that audiences will have the opportunity to experience Shine A Light in IMAX. The larger-than-life images and sound of an IMAX theatre will only enhance the experience of giving viewers the best seat in the house to watch the Rolling Stones perform.'
IMAX Filmed Entertainment chair and president Greg Foster pointed out that the giant-screen network has since expanded into hundreds of cities worldwide. He suggested the film, like many IMAX titles in this genre, would have a long shelf-life.
