Default From ET to Bee Gees: Steven Spielberg to turn Gibb life story into a movie

By Peter Robertson
Last updated at 1:51 AM on 17th October 2010

The Oscar-winning director of ET believes the group’s journey from unknowns in Manchester to worldwide fame will prove box-office gold.

British-born twins Maurice and Robin Gibb and their older brother Barry, 64, sold more than 200 million records. Maurice died suddenly in 2003 aged 53 but the two remaining brothers have recently said they will perform again.

Robin, 60, told The Mail on Sunday: ‘The movie is going to be done by some very important people. It will be our life story. Barry and I will be involved in the technical side.’

One of the challenges for Spielberg, 63, will be replicating the brothers’ distinctive three-part harmonies and Barry’s falsetto voice.

Robin said: ‘I’d like our original recordings to be used because it’s very hard to emulate them.’

The film will chart the brothers’ rise from child performers. They had their breakthrough in 1966 with Spics And Specs before hits including Jive Talkin’, How Deep Is Your Love and Stayin’ Alive.

This is great news, I can't wait to see it. I always thought the brothers story would make a great movie. Spielberg will do it justice!

This is mighty interesting

Little remark - As far as I know Maurice also had a great falsetto voice, not just Barry.
