New details of the forthcoming documentary on 2012's Stone Roses reunion filmed and directed by acclaimed British filmmaker Shane Meadows have been revealed.

Speaking exclusively to NME, producer Mark Herbert (This Is England) said that Meadows was currently in the process of editing more than 350 hours of footage covering the period from October 2011 when the band announced their comeback to August 2012 when they ceased touring.

Herbert said: "I'm not allowed to say very much, but what I can say is that it feels like a Shane Meadows film as well as a music documentary. Imagine the amazing music of the Roses combined with all the qualities that Shane's films are known for."

There's plenty of stuff that people haven't seen before – both past and present. Obviously there's live footage from the reunion gigs, but we've also got some never-seen-before archive footage.

Herbert said that the producers are aiming for release in the middle of 2013.

It was earlier reported that Meadows is treating the film as a labour of love, and shelved a "massive budget" film project to focus on the documentary.

The Stone Roses are also set to play two shows at Finsbury Park in London and another at Glasgow Green in June next year. Support for the Glasgow show includes Primal Scream, Jake Bugg and The View. Support for the London shows will be announced shortly. They are also set to headline the Isle Of Wight festival.
