Bee Gees movie: HUGE star lined up for Barry Gibb in biopic from Bohemian Rhapsody writer

Yesterday, Cooper’s spokesperson said the star is “not in negotiations at the moment”, but it is still early days after all.

Certainly, the project will probably attract the actor considering how the screenwriter keeps producing films that win the Best Actor category time and time again.

After all, Cooper has been nominated eight times for an Oscar, with four of those being in acting categories.

The 45-year-old star is well overdue a win and playing a famous historical figure is often something that is favoured by Academy voters.
