Ridley Scott is the latest director connected to the Bee Gees biopic project. Kenneth Branagh was said, in 2021, to be the film’s director, and, at the time, the script was being handled by Ben Elton. The next year, John Carney was the new director attached to the film after Branagh reportedly had to cancel due to scheduling conflicts; John Logan was also brought on board to write the script. After Carney also had to depart for scheduling conflicts, Lorene Scafaria took the gig. Scott, of course, is now in negotiations to take over.
