Kenneth Branagh to direct Bee Gees movie

The as-yet-untitled biopic will inform the story of how 3 siblings, Barry, Robin and Maurice Gibb, turned into one of the very popular music groups of perpetuity with strikes like “Stayin’ Alive,” “Night Fever” and “How Deep Is Your Love.”

Barry, the only enduring member of the group, will executive produce the movie, which will be dispersed by Paramount. News of the job follows the success of “The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart,” an HBO documentary about the group.

The upcoming film is currently triggering contrasts to 2018’s well-known movie “Bohemian Rhapsody,” about British rock band Queen. Graham King, who produced that movie, has actually signed on to produce the Bee Gees movie. Branagh has actually helmed a variety of other movies, consisting of “Murder on the Orient Express,” “Cinderella,” and “Thor.”
