Take That’s story set to be made into Hollywood movie


Gary Barlow, Howard Donald and Mark Owen have been in secret talks with movie bosses about turning their hit musical into a movie, it has been revealed.

The musical tells the story of a group of fans and their love for a boyband – and how the band’s songs became the soundtrack to their lives.

Gary told the Mirror, “They came to previews of the show the other day. It’s a possibility. We have never been involved in a film before – it would be a first.”

The musical, called The Band, boasts being the fastest-selling musical of recent history when it went on sale in April – racking up £10million in advance sales.

Stars such as Graham Norton and Mel Giedroyc have made an appearance at the sell-out opening night which saw the cast getting a standing ovation.

“We never broke America as a band and it would be unthinkable really. This show deserves a big stage. We would love to take it to the West End and then maybe Broadway,” Gary said.

Meanwhile, the English band are going worldwide after they announced a show in Tel Aviv – the first time they have ever played in Israel, and are hitting the road later this year, travelling Down Under.
