Film to premiere on HBO on Nov. 15, also has theatrical release
Set to premiere on the pay cabler Nov. 15, the film will document the famed British band from their early days as blue-obsessed teenagers in the 1960s to the current day as rock ‘n’ roll icons.
Title is taken from a lyric from of the group’s most popular songs, “Jumpin’ Jack Flash.”
Pic will be directed by Brett Morgen, the helmer of the Robert Evans doc “The Kid Stays in the Picture,” and will also get a theatrical release in the fall. It will also be broadcast on BBC2 later in the year.
Those interviewed include band members Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts and Ronnie Wood, as well as former Stones Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor.
Worldwide distributors of “Crossfire Hurricane” are Eagle Rock Entertainment in London, with Tremelo Productions and Milkwood Films as the production companies.
There is another Rolling Stones doc, “Charlie Is My Darling,” that is scheduled to have its world premiere on Sept. 29 as part of the New York Film Festival, with an encore performance set for Oct. 3.
