The Stone Roses news just keeps on coming in. With the band recently reunited and shows planned for next year, BBC Films has announced that they will be backing the film titled, Spike Island. According to, Spike Island will be, “a drama about the band’s May 1990 outdoor concert, which has been compared to the Woodstock of the ecstasy pill-dropping generation.” The film will be directed by Mat Whitecross (Sex&drugs&rock&roll) and produced by Fiona Neilson and Esher Douglas of Fiesta Productions. Elliott Tittensor (Shameless) and Matthew McNulty (Misfits, Control) will co-star.

In other film related news, Shane Meadows, director for BAFTA award winning film, This Is England, is supposedly in talks with the British band to film their upcoming concerts. The three Manchester shows sold out within minutes of going on sale.
