Acclaimed director Shane Meadows has told the BBC he is working hard to get a documentary covering the Stone Roses‘ reunion finished in time for this year’s Christmas market.
Meadows was speaking to the BBC ahead of the first Stone Roses Heaton Park concert last Friday evening (June 29th), and revealed his plans to record almost 200 hours worth of footage over the course the weekend, meaning the exhaustive project may run over its initial schedule.
“I was meant to be doing ‘England ’90′ and I was going to use the Roses music,” he said. “The only thing that could have superseded that would be The Roses reforming and asking me to do their film; whatever I was doing, I would put down because that’s the job of the world for me.”
“I was hoping to get the documentary out for Christmas, but over this weekend alone we’re going to shoot 180-200 hours of footage – we’ve got 35 cameras out there. Whether I’ll even get through the footage by Christmas we’ll wait and see.”Just Published:
