Downton Director Plans Rolling Stones Film

“Downton Abbey” frequent helmer Andy Goddard is set to direct the film adaptation of Robert Greenfield’s “Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones” for City Entertainment, KippSter Entertainment and The Gotham Group.

The story is set around the band’s 1972 album “Exile On Main Street,” a time when they were both at the height of their powers and also spinning out of control as relationship splits, tax issues and more thretened to engulf them.

Through all the madness, the Stones cut one of the most well-regarded rock ‘n roll records ever made. Production on this project aims to kick off this winter with casting now underway for both Mick Jagger and Keith Richards.
