The film adaptation of the book Exile on Main Street: A Season in Hell with the Rolling Stones will be directed by Andy Goddard who has earned acclaim as director of Downton Abbey and his work on Law & Order: SUV. The movie will focus on the turmoil and creative intensity of the period when the Stones, moved to southern France to avoid onerous tax rates in the UK. Surrounded by friends, lovers and random hangers-on in a nearly perpetual party mode, the group managed to write and record the landmark 1972 album the book and film are named for. The search for the actors that will play the band members has begun and filming is expected to begin early in 2017. Jagger's son James was said to be under consideration to play his father, but other reports indicate the roll coud go to Harry Styles of One Direction.
