He is one of the world’s most revered film directors, and they are probably the world’s biggest band. Martin Scorsese is now going to give the same treatment to the Rolling Stones that he has given to Bob Dylan, and a host of acclaimed Hollywood movies before that.

This week Scorsese began filming the band for a documentary movie due out in cinemas next year, and the director has surrounded himself with some of the industry’s best names in cinematography, documentary film-making and camerawork.

The Stones are on the New York leg of their Bigger Bang world tour, and were filmed at one their smallest venues, the art deco Beacon Theatre, by Scorsese last night and on Sunday night. Footage from the concerts is expected form the main part of the film, along with behind-the-scenes moments, interviews and historical footage of the band.

How the finished product will turn out, probably only Scorsese, 64, really knows. Nobody connected to the project will yet talk about it publicly.

Dear Guys. I am an aspiring filmmaker based here in Jozi South Africa and I am planning to do a film about one of the great bands ever to come out of South Africa I am talking about Ladysmith Black Mambazo and as I am busy with the pre production I want to make this film a great film and would love to have access to the treatment or proposal of the making of the documentary about Rolling Sones because I do believe that I will find exactly what I want.
