Rolling Stones fans will get an inside look into the life and times of the iconic rock band with the fall premiere of the film, "Crossfire Hurricane."

The rock-and-roll documentary, directed by Brett Morgen and named after a line in the hit song "Jumpin' Jack Flash," will debut Nov. 15 on HBO and in select theaters, and will hit BBC2 in the United Kingdom later this year.

The movie about the legendary British outfit will chronicle the members' rise from teenagers to one of the biggest rock acts in music history, from Jagger and Richards' songwriting partnership and the demise of founding guitarist Brian Jones to the 1969 Altamont Festival experience and the group's latest world tour.

Commentary from Mick Jagger, Keith Richards, Charlie Watts, Ronnie Wood and former Stones members Bill Wyman and Mick Taylor, as well as historical footage, period interviews, news footage and exclusive live performances make up the documentary.

"When we got together, something magical happened, and no one could ever copy that," Wyman said in a press release.

In July, The Rolling Stones commemorated the 50th anniversary of their first-ever gig with an appearance at an intimate photography exhibit in London. The exhibition coincided with the release of "The Rolling Stones 50," a 352-page photography book celebrating the 50th anniversary. That collection is currently available via publisher Thames & Hudson's website.
