Yes, you read right! A Bee Gees movie is in the works, and Steven Spielberg is the oneÂ rumored to be bringingÂ the musical biopic to the big screen. He has done just about everything else under the sun when it comes to film. Why not a musical biopic?
The news of the project comes from Screen Rant.Â The film will tell the story of the Gibb brothers that rose to popularity the 1970s when they went disco and released hit songs like "Stayin' Alive" and "Night Fever."
Â Both songs, in addition to "More Than A Woman," appear on the film soundtrack "Saturday Night Fever" starring John Travolta.Â That film was intrumental in launching the career of Travolta alongside "Grease" from the late 1970s.
Surviving Gibb brothers,Â Robin and Barry, will be involved in the film behind the scenes, and as it stands now with their sound, the original recordings by the Bee Gees will be used in the film. Their sound is too distinctive to do otherwise.
This isn't the first biopic that has come out of the time period. "The Runaways" starring Kristen Stewart was a hit earlier this year. Will Spielberg create a hit with the life of the Gibb brothers to work with?
Likely! He has the golden touch when it comes to movies!He is also aÂ man to mind the details, so it will be true to the time. That is for sure. What do you think? Do you want to see a movie based on the story of the Bee Gees? Go here for the latest in entertainment news and gossip.
