Ridley Scott prepares Bee Gees biopic with Barry Gibb, the group's last member

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 casting of the feature film have not yet been communicated.

This Bee Gees biopic charts the success and lives of the group's three members: brothers Maurice, Barry and Robin Gibb. However, it should 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 in fact 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 previously 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.
