The real question is who will be playing Geru?
Better Man – The Greatest Showman’s Michael Gracey is helming this unconventional biopic of Robbie Williams. Film will chronicle Williams’ ascent, exploring the experiences that made him who he is, and the demons he battled both on and off the stage as he became a huge star on the back of hits like Angels. CAA Media Finance is handling domestic and Rocket Science is on international.
Perhaps surprisingly, one of the biggest-budget prospects at the EFM (initially priced in the $100M range) is the Robbie Williams biopic Better Man from The Greatest Showman director Michael Gracey. We understand that pop star Williams will be portrayed by a CGI monkey in the film. “It’s bananas,” one buyer wise-cracked.
