The 'A Star Is Born' actor is expected to portray one of the legendary Gibb brothers in the upcoming true-story movie revolving around the iconic British band.

AceShowbiz - Bradley Cooper is reportedly in talks to play Bee Gees' star Barry Gibb in a biopic about the British band.

According to the Daily Mail's Baz Bamigboye, the Oscar-winning actor is having "informal discussions" with bosses about portraying the late singer and guitarist in a new movie ("Untitled Bee Gees Biopic").

Cooper has already shown off his vocal talents in "A Star Is Born", which he starred in and directed, and would be required to sing if he took on the gig. However, Bamigboye added that the 45-year-old will "receive help" - presumably from a vocal coach - to reach the Bee Gees' infamous high notes.

The film, which doesn't have a director as yet, is set to follow the Bee Gees - brothers Barry, Robin Gibb, and Maurice Gibb - as they arrive back in London from Australia, after emigrating Down Under from their original home in the Isle of Man.

It's being written by Anthony McCarten, who has enjoyed massive success with films including "Bohemian Rhapsody", "The Theory of Everything", and "The Two Popes".
