Stone Roses reunion film to get cinema release next year

stoneroseswide11The Shane Meadows documentary which will tell the story of The Stone Roses‘ hugely successful reunion is to get a cinema release next year, according to the film’s producer Mark Herbert.

“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,” he has told BBC 6Music.

director Meadows has previously outlined the exhaustive nature of the project, and told the BBC earlier this summer that he planned on shooting over 200 hours of footage of the Manchester band’s homecoming Heaton Park shows, while also documenting their wider 2012 European comeback tour.

“We haven’t set a release date yet, it won’t be physically finished until the spring but it will be released in cinemas,” Herbert continued. “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.”
