Barry Gibb said to be an executive producer

A film biopic about Manx band The Bee Gees is being rumoured to be directed by Ridley Scott.

The trio of brothers - who grew up in Union Mills - were one of the top-selling artists of the 1960s and '70s, with hits like How Deep is Your Love, Night Fever and Stayin' Alive.

According to the Daily Mail, the Gladiator and Blade Runner director has already had a script penned for the film.

It's said the only surviving brother, Barry Gibb, will be an executive producer.
