HOLLYWOOD, CA (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Martin Scorsese, fresh from his Best Director Academy Award win for "The Departed," will team up with Mick Jagger to direct "The Long Play,”
a film set in the world of the music business spanning over three
decades, for Paramount Pictures.
The film is based on an original idea of Jagger’s which Jagger and co-producer Victoria Pearman’s Jagged Films took to Scorsese several years ago; Jagger and Scorsese are co-producers with Pearman. The project also re-teams Scorsese with Oscar winning writer for The Departed, Bill Monahan.
Jagger and Scorsese recently collaborated on a Rolling Stones feature length
concert documentary shot at The Beacon Theater in New York to be released this fall.
Scorsese is represented by Endeavor, Rick Yorn of The Firm and Jake Bloom of
Bloom Hergott Diemer Rosenthal & LaViolette LLP. Jagger and Pearman are repped
by ICM's Jeff Berg and Ken Kleinberg. Monahan is also repped by Endeavor and
David Fox. – Jane Cohen and Bob Grossweiner
