After Michael Jackson, Amy Winehouse and Bob Marley, the members of the Bee Gees will also be entitled to their biopic.

Director Ridley Scott is indeed preparing a feature film which retraces the adventures of the Australian-British group.

The release date and the cast of the feature film have not yet been communicated.

This biopic about the Bee Gees traces the success and lives of the three members of the group: brothers Maurice, Barry and Robin Gibb.

However, it should only contain very few archive images (which will only be used for the concert scenes) and a lot of reconstruction images.

Ridley Scott, who has always shown his affection for the disco group and who has notably maintained a close relationship with its manager Robert Stigwood, wants to get as close as possible to reality in his next biopic.

The director of

Napoleon

 will indeed work with Barry Gibb - the last surviving member of the Bee Gees -, who is also executive producer of the project.

The Bee Gees are particularly famous for their disco songs

Night Fever

and

Stayin' Alice

.

Since its inception in 1960, the group has won nine Grammy Awards and sold more than 200 million albums worldwide.

Paramount Pictures, which produced the recent biopic

Bob Marley: One Love

, will also produce this new project about the disco group.

The screenplay for the feature film is entrusted to John Logan, who already worked with Ridley Scott on

Alien: Covenant.

Filming on the Bee Gees biopic will begin following the release of Scott's upcoming film

Gladiator 2

, which hits theaters on November 22, 2024.
