The Rolling Stones will hit the silver screen once again. Deadline Hollywood reports that Virgin Produced, the movie branch of Richard Branson's business empire, has just acquired the film rights to Robert Greenfield's 2008 book Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell.

While countless documentaries have been made about the Stones, the movie that Virgin Produced is developing will be a drama about the summer that the band spent in the South of France recording their 1972 double album, Exile on Main Street. It will focus particularly on the sometimes-tumultuous relationship between Mick Jagger and Keith Richards. 

In a 2010 interview on the making of that classic album, Keith Richards told Rolling Stone, "It wasn't a great environment for, like, breathing. It was very Hitleresque — the last days of Berlin sort of thing."

“Party Rock Anthem”

LMFAO | 2011

This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
