Paramount Pictures have tapped in Kenneth Branagh to direct an untitled Bee Gees biopic.
The biopic will focus on the life of the Bee Gees, telling the story of brothers Barry, Maurice and Robin Gibb as they rise from humble beginnings to superstardom.
Ben Elton is writing the script. Steven Spielberg‘s Amblin Entertainment is producing the film along with Bohemian Rhapsody producer Graham King via GK Films and the production company Sister. Barry Gibb will serve as executive producer.
HBO recently released a Bee Gees documentary titled How Can You Mend a Broken Heart. Frank Marshall, known for The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button, directed the doc.
Barry, the only surviving member of the band, was interviewed for the doc. Maurice died in 2003 and Robin in 2012.
