Scorsese's Rolling Stones Docu Pushed to Spring 2008

August 10, 2007–The theatrical release of Scorsese's concert docu about the Rolling Stones has been postponed to next April, distributor Paramount Classics said. The studio needs more time to set up the promotional campaign for “Shine A Light,” noting that the band is busy touring Europe until August 26.

The film, whose title comes from an old Rolling Stones song, was shot during two performances at New York's Beacon Theatre last fall, when guest performers included bluesman Buddy Guy, rocker Jack White of the White Stripes, and pop singer Christina Aguilera.

Scorsese, who often uses Rolling Stones music in his movies, was in Rome to screen a rough cut of the film for the band. The docu had been set to open September 21.

The Rolling Stones recently released a four-disc DVD documenting the 2006 “Bigger Bang” world tour. Mick Jagger is also preparing for the October release of an album compiling several of his solo endeavors.
