Sundance has revealed a late-breaking selection set to make its world premiere at the upcoming 2014 fest: documentary “Lambert & Stamp.”

The film will not only play in Park City, but also at the third Sundance London film and music festival (running April 25-27). “Lambert & Stamp” is the first film to be announced as part of the 2014 Sundance London program (with the full lineup for that fest announced in March).

Here’s the official synopsis:

Cooper) — In this crazy, chaotic gospel of chance, aspiring filmmakers Chris Stamp and Kit Lambert set out to search for a subject for their underground movie, leading them to discover, mentor, and manage the iconic band known as The Who and create rock 'n' roll history.

And here are the 2014 lineups for Sundance's US and World CompetitionPremieresShorts and Spotlight, Midnight and New Frontiers sections.
