English singer and entertainer Robbie Williams’s biopic ‘Better Man’ will begin filming in Melbourne, Australia in early 2022 under the direction of Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman), reports Variety.
Williams is one of the U.K.’s most prominent entertainers and one of the best-selling artists of all time. He first found fame with the group Take That, from 1989 to 1995, and then segued into a successful solo career. The film will offer an introspective look into the experiences that shaped Williams, both on and off stage.
‘Better Man’ will be distributed in Australia and New Zealand by leading film distributor, Roadshow Films. International sales are handled by U.K.-based Rocket Science, which previously handled ‘Schumacher’ and ‘The Trial of The Chicago 7’.
The project was confirmed Friday by Australia’s federal government and the Victoria state authorities. It will benefit from the federal producer offset scheme and Film Victoria’s incentive program.
