Lorene Scafaria will reportedly make a film about the popular American band Bee Gees for Paramount Pictures. John Carney was earlier attached to direct the film. Scafaria is best known for making Hustlers, Seeking a Friend for the End of the World, and The Meddler.
The film has been in development at Paramount for quite a while, John Logan has reportedly written the latest version of the screenplay. Graham King, who produced the Oscar-winning Freddie Mercury biopic The Bohemian Rhapsody will produce the Bee Gees film along with Amblin Entertainment.
The Bee Gees was formed in 1958 and consisted of brothers Barry, Robin, and Maurice Gibb. They redefined pop music and became an unshakeable part of pop culture during the 60s and 70s. The Bee Gees wrote songs for Saturday Night Fever which went on to popularise Disco music in America at the time.
Some of their most famous hit numbers include Stayin’ Alive, How Deep Is Your Love, You Should Be Dancing, and More Than a Woman.
