Judd Apatow reveals in a new interview with MTV that at a point early in his career, he almost made a Rolling Stones film with Brad Pitt and Ben Stiller.  In the interview, he reveals how he and Stiller pitched the film to the Rolling Stones and they were pretty much onboard before realizing that the film was logistically not possible.

Apatow describes how the film would follow two average guys chasing after the Stones on a roadtrip – one of the guys to be played by Ben Stiller, and the other to be played by Brad Pitt, then fresh off ‘Thelma and Louise’ and not yet the household name he is today.  "The idea is Ben and Brad Pitt have these crappy jobs and they're both obsessed with the Rolling Stones and they're going to follow them across the country.”
 
He adds that they had the Stones support, saying, “They told us they'd do it, and they let us watch them rehearse for three hours.  We're alone in a gym at a high school and the Stones are just playing for us. And this is my best showbiz moment ever: In the middle of the rehearsal, Mick Jagger walks over to me and Ben and says, 'You guys OK? You need a glass of water?' I said to Ben, 'This is the best moment ever — don't forget it.' "

Unfortunately, the project fell apart when they all realized that it wasn’t logistically possible to follow the Stones on tour and make a film, and besides, Brad Pitt left to ‘do some movie called ‘Seven’.
