Rolling Stones' volatile relationship to be explored in new movie

London, Mon, 23 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 23 (ANI): The volatile relationship between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards is going to be made into a film.

But instead of concentrating on the recent rows between the Rolling Stones,' the film will focus on their professional and personal relationship in the 1970s.

Sir Richard Branson is backing the movie after Virgin Films acquired the rights to the book 'Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell'.

The film will explore the drugs and decadence that went on at Richard's south of France villa during the making of the 1971 album, which is considered one of the group's finest, the Daily Mail reported.

The 1971 album featured the songs 'Tumbling Dice' and is ranked 7th on Rolling Stone magazine's top 50 albums.

During the recording Richards was in the grip of a heroin addiction and the band were in disarray after parting ways with their manager Allan Klein and being forced to leave England as tax exiles.

The book by Robert Greenfield describes how the Stones, their wives and girlfriends as well as hangers on 'spent their days smoking, snorting, and drinking whatever they could get their hands on.'

Jagger and Richards have often admitted they have been at loggerheads during the group's 50 years of performing.

In his autobiography 'Life Richards' described Jagger as unbearable and also made a disparaging remark about the size of his manhood.

Jagger was said to be deeply hurt by the book and it has prevented the Stones from going back on tour or in the studio to make a new album to commemorate their 50th anniversary this year.

No actors have yet been cast to play Jagger and Richards in the film, according to website Deadline Hollywood.

The film will be the latest to feature the Rolling Stones.A documentary about their enduring fame is being released in September as part of the 50th anniversary celebrations. (ANI)
