Birmingham-based film financing and distribution company, Intandem Films, has secured the UK distribution rights for a feature film about the life of Rolling Stones founder Brian Jones.
Called Stoned , the film is expected to launch in cinemas across the UK and Ireland in November with a charity gala screening in Birmingham.
Intandem said it was in consultation with UCG Cinema Broad Street to host the event.
The company also said the film should see DVD release in Spring 2006.
Intandem, which owns the international sale rights to Stoned signed the deal to distribute in the UK in collaboration with Vertigo Films.
"As Intandem has had significant experience distributing in the UK, we made the decision to undertake UK distribution ourselves along with Vertigo," chief executive Gary Smith said.
The company plans to release Stoned, which features Leo Gregory as Brian Jones, to UK cinemas the same weekend as the new Harry Potter film The Goblet of Fire.
"With the release of Harry Potter, there are unlikely to be many other films launching that weekend," Mr Smith said.
"As our audience is likely to be very different, it should provide cinema-goers with an alternative."
Directed by Stephen Woolley Stoned challenges the official "death by misadventure" verdict of Brian Jones' death. Brain died in his swimming pool in 1969 ? he was 27 years old.
Under the terms of the agreement with the film's financier, Audley Films, Intandem will be entitled to revenue from the direct distribution of the film in the UK and Ireland from cinemas, DVD, all forms of television and airlines.
Intandem, which floated on the AIM market in April, also announced that it has secured a worldwide distribution agreement for a soundtrack of the music from the film with Milan Music - a specialist soundtrack company.
Mr Smith said the company also had a number of other distribution deals in the pipeline, including a Birmingham-related production.
"We would like to move into UK distribution as a key area for the business," he said.
