Jagger, Scorsese Team for ‘The Long Play’
The rock'n'roll icon to produce film documenting history of the music business.
Legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger will join famed director and Oscar winner Martin Scorsese for The Long Play, a forthcoming film documenting the music business over three decades. Scorsese will direct the film while Jagger and business partner Victoria Pearman will handle production. Bill Monahan, the Oscar-winning writer of The Departed, will pen the film’s screenplay.
Although no information regarding a soundtrack and Jagger’s musical involvement is currently available, a spokesperson for the rocker stated “anything’s possible.” The partnership is not the first for the duo either. Last October, Jagger tapped Scorsese to film the Rolling Stones’ two-night stint at New York City’s Beacon Theater for an upcoming concert documentary slated to hit store shelves this fall.
