Sure, superhero movies are all the rage these days and like what our other article just reported, it seems like there will be no slowing down for them for a while. But in the midst of all these crime-fighting, earth-saving fantastical stories, it would seem as if another era of filmmaking has come to our midst discreetly.
After the tremendous success of Bohemian Rhapsody bagging countless awards including Rami Malek winning Academy Award Best Actor and Paramount being in the win column with their Elton John biopic Rocketman, Vulture has just reported that Graham King, producer of Bohemian Rhapsody will be teaming up with Paramount and producer-financier Sister on a Bee Gees biopic.
Paramount having acquired the life rights to the Gibb family estate will give them the means to use the classic Bee Gees songs that impacted a whole generation of disco music in this future production about the life and career of the Bee Gees.
This will be the very first U.S. venture for Sister, who are based in London and the people behind the popular TV series Chernobyl. The venture was spearheaded by Stacey Snider, former CEO and chairwoman of 20th Century Fox who left after Disney finalized their acquisition of Fox last March.
The Bee Gees started their musical career in the late fifties as a pop music group but Barry, Maurice, and Robin found their success when they composed songs for Saturday Night Fever and created the renaissance for disco music. Their hits include How Deep is Your Love, Stayin’ Alive, You Should Be Dancing among other timeless hits.
Graham King will have another opportunity at sinking his teeth into another biographical feature of yet another iconic group following the astounding and award-winning venture that was Bohemian Rhapsody and given his track record though having a minuscule sample size, movie and music fans alike should be excited on this future production.
