Ridley Scott is in negotiation to direct Paramount Pictures’ as yet untitled film about musical group The Bee Gees, according to reports.

Scott will also produce alongside Graham King, Michael Pruss and Stacey Snider for Scott Free. Barry Gibb will be the executive producer. Barry Gibb is the last member of the group to survive.

The script is from John Logan, who wrote Scott’s classic Gladiator, as well as Martin Scorsese’s Howard Hughes biopic The Aviator and James Bond entries Skyfall and Spectre. Amblin will distribute the film worldwide, while Sister and Amblin in the UK have the rights to co-finance it.

Barry Gibb, Robin Gibb and Maurice Gibb are British but they first performed in Australia as The Bee Gees. The group’s career spanned from the early 1960s to the turn-of-the-millennium, and peaked in the late 1970s with the success of the
