The movie will be made by Richard Branson's Virgin Produced, and be based on Robert Greenfield's 2008 book Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell.

Brandon and Phil Murphy - who are currently working on a Steve McQueen project for Sony - will write the screenplay while Jason Felts will serve as producer. Casting has not yet begun on the film.

It has previously been revealed The Rolling Stones will celebrate their 50th anniversary with an authorised documentary which will trace their history from their formation in 1962 to the current day.

The film will deliver the original, bold, sexy and dangerous flavour of the iconic rock band," director Brett Morgen said in a statement.
