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."

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
