After wrapping up the Rolling Stones tour, he also wrapped Freejack, in which he stars with current movie cannibal Anthony Hopkins. For his big-screen return, Jagger plays a twenty-first-century bounty hunter with the enviable and admirable task of stalking and trying to kill Emilio Estevez.

"It reminded me of growing up and listening to the radio and that feeling the song gave me seemed to go with the melody and basic idea I had for 'Fantasy.' I initially told [co-writer] Dave Hall about the idea, and we did it. We called up the Tom Tom Club and they were really into it."
