Shane Meadows' Stone Roses Documentary to Get 2013 Release
Published Oct 23, 2012Since announcing their reunion in 2011, the Stone Roses have been the subject of a great deal of attention. That includes the cameras of famed This is England filmmaker Shane Meadows, who has been working on a documentary about the reunion tour.
While it doesn't have a release date just yet, Warp Films producer Mark Herbert told BBC 6 Music that the film was nearing post-production.
"Shane's got [the film] 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," he explained.
With that in mind, don't expect this one to go straight to DVD. "We haven't set a release date yet, it won't be physically finished until the spring but it will be released in cinemas," he added. "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."
Stay tuned for more details as they become available.
