Shane Meadows' documentary tracing The Stone Roses' reunion is to be released in cinemas next year.

The as-yet untitled film was shot by the This Is England filmmaker at and around the band's reunion gigs in 2012, including those at Manchester's Heaton Park in June and July. Producers Warp Films are hoping to see the story hit the big screen in spring 2013.

Mark Herbert from Warp Films, the company behind Submarine as well as a number of Arctic Monkeys videos, said that Meadows is almost ready to show the first draft of the film to Ian Brown and the rest of the Roses. Speaking to BBC 6Music, Herbert said: "Shane's got it into a shape now to show the band and the plan is that we'll lock it by Christmas and do post-production in the new year for release sometime next year."

Herbert adds: "We haven’t set a release date yet, it won't be physically finished until the spring but it will be released in cinemas. We deliberately didn't want it to be something that went straight to DVD. It's Shane Meadows making a movie with The Stone Roses and there's lots of Shane Meadows trademarks in there."

The Stone Roses played three homecoming gigs in Manchester's Heaton Park between June 29 and July 1 this year, entering the Guinness Book of World Records as the fastest selling rock concerts in UK history.

According to reports
, The Stone Roses are reportedly set to release a new studio album in 2013. The Madchester legends, who originally split up in 1996, reunited last year and have taken part in globe trotting reunion tour including a number of festival headline sets. The band signed a two-album deal with Universal Records on reuniting, but have debuted no new material in their live sets so far. Earlier this month, John Squire confirmed to NME that the band are still writing new material.
