Kenneth Branagh is going to direct the untitled Bee Gees< biopic movie for Paramount Pictures. I wonder if it will be called Staying Alive? Ben Elton is working on the screenplay.

The Bee Gees were a music group formed in 1958, featuring brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. The trio were especially successful as a popular music act in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and later as prominent performers of the disco music era in the mid-to-late 1970s. The Bee Gees wrote all of their own hits, as well as writing and producing several major hits for other artists.

The Bee Gees have sold over 120 million records worldwide (with estimates as high as over 220 million), making them among the best-selling music artists of all time. The Bee Gees’ Hall of Fame citation says, “Only Elvis Presley, the Beatles, Michael Jackson, Garth Brooks and Paul McCartney have outsold the Bee Gees.” The Bee Gees are the third most successful band in Billboard charts history after the Beatles and the Supremes

Barry Gibb, who took part in Frank Marshall’s HBO documentary How Can You Mend a Broken Heart, is working on the new film and will be executive producer according to Deadline.

Paramount got life rights to the Gibb family estate, and the rights to use their classic songs in a movie back in 2019.

It is still early days for this one, but I do like The Bee Gees and I now wonder who will be playing the Brothers Gibb?
