The Bee Gees are getting the stage musical treatment.
Universal Pictures president Jimmy Horowitz announced Wednesday that its live theater division has reached an agreement with Barry Gibb, Yvonne Gibb, and the Estate of Robin Gibb to develop a stage musical based on the life story of the Bee Gees. Barry Gibb will serve as an executive producer on the project, which will feature the group's iconic music.
"This is a wonderful opportunity for our family," said Barry Gibb in a statement. "I’m personally very excited to be a part of the creative process along with Yvonne and Dwina. It’s another adventure for us and a chance to throw the spotlight on all my brothers and finally the real story of us will be told. It’s an honor to be working alongside the people I most respect. I can’t wait to get started!"
