NEW YORK (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) —
Paramount Pictures has acquired the North American rights to Martin Scorsese's Rolling Stones feature documentary that was filmed at New York's Beacon Theatre on October 29 during President Clinton's birthday bash and on November 1. Paramount plans to release the film in fourth-quarter 2007
Clinton's remarks at the event are expected to be included in the film, which will focus on the two concerts from the group's current "A Bigger Bang" tour as well as historical and contemporary behind-the-scenes footage and interviews. The Stones made a portion of the tickets for the October 29 show available to the Clinton Foundation to support its charitable work around the world.
Scorsese is the director of two acclaimed music documentaries — 1978's "The Last Waltz," featuring the Band, and 2005's "No Direction Home: Bob Dylan." Oscar-winning cinematographer Robert Richardson ("The Aviator," "JFK") is supervising the photography. –Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
