Robbie Williams is the latest superstar to have his life and career go under the microscope in a musical biopic.

The project is being helmed by Michael Gracey, who previously directed the hit Hugh Jackman musical 'The Greatest Showman'.

It's being described as a "a fantastical coming of age story about the unlikely rise of [the] celebrated singer/songwriter."

Deadline continues: " The film tells the story of 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"."

First-time screenwriters Oliver Cole and Simon Gleeson are penning the script. The film will soon be shopped at Berlinale.

Gracey has said: "As for how we represent Robbie in the film, that bit is top secret.

"I want to do this in a really original way."

Comparing it to films of a similar ilk like 'Bohemian Rhapsody' and 'Rocketman', Gracey added: "Unlike some people who were born prodigies or musical geniuses and you follow the narrative of the world catching up to their brilliance, this isn’t that story.

"Robbie is that Everyman, who just dreamed big and followed those dreams and they took him to an incredible place. Because of that, his is an incredibly relatable story.

"He’s not the best singer, or dancer, and yet, he managed to sell 80 million records worldwide. You can relate to the guy who doesn’t see himself as having any extraordinary talent, even though of course, he does.

"What he did have is the will, vision and confidence to say, I’m going to pursue my dream. For us as an audience, it’s a window into the world, of what if we just went for it and chased that impossible dream that so many of us put to one side."

Gracey revealed that he and Robbie Williams spent hours together in the singer's recording studio hashing out the script.

He also said that Robbie's songs "will be re-sung, for the emotion of the moment" in the soundtrack.

Production for 'Every Man' commences this summer.
