    Albert Maysles, the director of the legendary Rolling Stones tour film Gimme Shelter, has signed on for a

    Fall Out Boy documentary.

    According an MTV.com interview with the band's frontman, Pete Wentz, "Albert came along and was like, 'I'm really interested in doing something with your band,' and we did the thing like when you're in high school and the hot girl talks to you, and you sort of look behind you and go, 'Who, us?' This guy could document pretty much anything, and he wanted to do something with us. That's what blew our minds more than anything."

    Maysles already captured five stops on the group's Young Wild Things Tour, including a secret show in Buffalo, NY. He also filmed behind the scenes footage of Wentz's appearance in an upcoming Cobra Starship video—part of a plan to also document Wentz's label, Decaydance Records.

    "I'm really excited about it, whatever happens, because I think most bands just film a bunch of crap for 'the official DVD,' and those are always kind of cheesy, like just extras to sell the re-release of the album," Wentz told MTV. "We'd like to have it submitted to some festivals, maybe release it as a proper, real DVD in the fall. I'm not sure. All I know is I can look forward to having Albert and his crew sleeping on my couch."
