The documentary is being made in collaboration with the Stones' founding member, who joined the group in 1962 and departed in 1993. He has led his band Bill Wyman's Rhythm Kings since 1997.

"My life has been an extraordinary adventure," Wyman said, via Deadline. "The time feels right to delve into the archive and tell my story before I croak."

Directed by Oliver Murray, the film traces the artist's career and will feature previously unseen film from his vast archive of memorabilia. Wyman, who turned 80 last October, shot hours of film footage, took thousands of photographs and kept a detailed daily diary.

"It has been a privilege to explore Bill's vast and unseen archive and piece together his incredible life," the filmmakers said in a statement, via Variety. "We are thrilled to be working with the fantastic team at Sundance Selects to bring this unique and compelling project to the screen."

Wyman revealed he was diagnosed with prostate cancer last March. In 2015 he released Back to Basics, his first solo album in more than three decades.
