Richard Branson’s Virgin Produced label has acquired the film rights to Robert Greenfield’s 2008 book “Exile on Main Street” about the making of the Rolling Stones’ album of the same name reports Deadline.
The plan is to turn it into a drama about the professional and personal relationship between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards as the band recorded their classic in the south of France in the summer of 1971.
Brandon and Phil Murphy, who are currently penning a Steve McQueen biopic for Sony, are set to write the screenplay.
Branson’s Virgin Records released three Stones albums back in the 1990’s. Jason Felts, Joshua Maurer and David Stern will produce.
