Bee Gees Bio Movie Gets The Green Light...Finally!!

     A biopic about the life of The Bee Gees has reportedly been given the go-ahead.  Steven Spielberg and Richard Curtis are reportedly among the filmmakers who have previously failed in their efforts to make the film documenting the lives of the iconic family pop band — older brother Barry Gibb, and twins Robin and Maurice Gibb.  However, now, according to Robin’s widow Edwina Gibb, the family is in talks to bring the trio’s story to the big screen.  “Our film is in the bag. We want to get the right writers. We are in discussions,” she told Britain’s Daily Mirror newspaper. “We have to get agreements from the three families – Barry, Yvonne (Maurice’s widow) and myself. It’ll be interesting.”  The film is expected to chart the brothers’ rise from child performers in the 1950s, to a Beatles-inspired pop trio in the 1960s and kings of disco in the 1970s.     Back in 2010, it was reported that Spielberg was to make a movie about the Bee Gees, and at the time, Robin seemingly confirmed the project.  “Barry and I will be involved in the technical side,” he said.  However, Robin sadly passed away in 2012 due to complications from cancer and intestinal surgery. He was 62!!
