NEW YORK (Hollywood Reporter) - The Edge, Jimmy Page and Jack White will be jamming at a theater near you next summer.

Sony Pictures Classics will present the respective guitar heroes from U2, Led Zeppelin and the White Stripes cranking their instruments up to 11 in "It Might Get Loud."

The rockumentary from Oscar-winning director Davis Guggenheim ("An Inconvenient Truth") looks at the electric guitar through the history of each musician, as told through their own words and sounds.

The movie premiered at September's Toronto International Film Festival.
