Robbie Night Fever
09:30 01 September 2005
Robbie Williams is reportedly set to star in a remake of '70s classic 'Saturday Night Fever'.
The heartthrob singer is hotly tipped to play snake-hipped Tony Manero in the film, which is being remade by the Bee Gees.
The group will own their back catalogue of hits this year and are said to be planning a £20million remake of the disco movie as their first project.
Sources claim brothers Robin and Barry Gibb believe Robbie would be perfect as Tony, who was played by Hollywood star John Travolta in the 1977 film.
A friend of the band is quoted in Britain's Daily Star newspaper as saying: "They have always wanted to remake the film and bring out a more modern version. And Robbie is the ideal candidate to play Tony - he can sing, dance, is a good-looking lad and has loads of charisma."
Meanwhile, the pop star has revealed he is releasing his sixth solo album in Europe next month.
The album, entitled 'Intensive Care', marks the follow-up to the 2003 'Escapology'.
