Los Angeles, Dec 3 | SRobbie Williams biopic ‘Better Man’ to film in Australia. inger-entertainer Robbie Williams biopic ‘Better Man’ will begin filming in Melbourne, Australia in early 2022 under the direction of Michael Gracey of ‘The Greatest Showman’.

Williams is one of the UK’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, reports variety.com.

The film will offer an introspective look into the experiences that shaped Williams, both on and off stage.

Singer-actor, Williams is expected to appear as himself, with some of his songs re-interpreted and recontextualised in the film.

‘Better Man’ will be distributed in Australia and New Zealand by leading film distributor, Roadshow Films.

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.

Australia has been the location for numerous international productions since the beginning of the COVID-19 outbreak, and multiple new studio building projects are underway in order to expand capacity.

Things have looked less rosy since the Delta variant caused different states to adopt new restrictions and health precautions.

“I’m so excited I am making this movie in Victoria with my friend Michael Gracey,” said Williams.

The production is expected to create around 2,200 local jobs, including 14 local heads of department, 80 visual effects practitioners, and 220 crew.
