The story of Caribou Records, where Paul McCartney and John Lennon both recorded, is to be told in a new film, it has been revealed.

Moviemaker Randall Miller is to helm the project about James William Guerico's studio, which is located in Colorado's Rocky Mountains. Miller has previously worked on films such as 2007's Nobel Sonas well as the forthcoming story of legendary New York venue CBGB, which will see Foo Fighters drummer Taylor Hawkins play Iggy Pop.

Music stars who recorded at Caribou include Lennon, McCartney and Sir Elton John, who named his 1974 album after the studio where he recorded it. Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter about why he wanted to make the live action film, director Miller cited Guerico as his main influence.

"He left Hollywood to go to the wilds of Colorado and put everything on the line," said Miller. "Everyone thought he was nuts. But all these artists -- from John Lennon, Michael Jackson, Elton John, The Beach Boys came out there. He’s basically this young guy who had a crazy dream."

Meanwhile, Dave Grohl's studio documentary Sound City will premiere in selected cinemas on January 31. The film will get its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 18. At the premiere, Grohl will perform with a number of musicians featured in the film about the California studio where a raft of classic album's including Nirvana's 'Nevermind' and Fleetwood Mac's 'Rumours' were recorded.
