There's a Bee Gees biopic in the works, and Deadline reports that Kenneth Branagh has been tapped to direct. Barry Gibb, the last surviving Bee Gees member (and Gibb brother), who was a producer on HBO's 2020 Bee Gees documentary, will be an executive producer on the film and, according to Deadline, will be "very involved in the narrative film."
No casting news yet, but writing the screenplay is Ben Elton, who co-created classic punk-era UK sitcom The Young Ones, and also wrote for Blackadder and, recently, wrote the screenplay for 2019 film All is True. That was directed by Branagh (who also starred as William Shakespeare). The film has been in the works since 2019, when Paramount acquired the rights to the Bee Gees story and rights to use their music.
