Bon Jovi have announced plans for a band documentary, appointing an acclaimed director to helm the project.
Barbara Kopple will put together the movie, as the veteran rockers prepare to embark on their upcoming world tour.
The Oscar-winning film-maker is expected to cut old and new footage together for the currently untitled documentary, which was revealed this week by the band.
Guitarist Richie Sambora said Bon Jovi were eager to be seen in the same widescreen light as some of their rock'n'roll peers.
"We just realized that (over) all the years, we really didn't document enough stuff", Sambora told Billboard of the plan.
"We put out a box set a few years ago, but we look at other bands, contemporaries like U2, even Tom Petty and Aerosmith, and they had cameras rolling all the time.
"We didn't have a lot of footage like that going on", said the star, who admitted the project was "a work in progress", with no official release date.
