Shane Meadows’ documentary tracing the reunion of THE STONE ROSES (who got back together a year ago) is to be released in theaters next year.
The documentary, which currently has no name, was shot by the “This Is England” filmmaker at and around the band’s reunion gigs in 2012, including those at Manchester‘s Heaton Park in June and July. Producers Warp Films are hoping to see the story hit the big screen in spring 2013.
Mark Herbert from Warp Films, the company behind “Submarine“ as well as a number of ARCTIC MONKEYS videos, states that Meadows is almost ready to show the first draft of the film to Ian Brown and the rest of band. Speaking to BBC 6Music, Herbert states:
Shane’s got it into a shape now to show the band and the plan is that we’ll lock it by Christmas and do post-production in the new year for release sometime next year. We haven’t set a release date yet, it won’t be physically finished until the spring but it will be released in cinemas. We deliberately didn’t want it to be something that went straight to DVD. It’s Shane Meadows making a movie with The Stone Roses and there’s lots of Shane Meadows trademarks in there.
