The federal and Victorian governments have today confirmed that Victoria will host the shooting of the Robbie Williams biopic Better Man, which will begin filming at Docklands Studios in early 2022 and employ thousands of Victorian creatives.

The film will be directed and co-written by Victorian filmmaker Michael Gracey, best known for his energetic blockbuster musical starring Hugh Jackman, The Greatest Showman (2017) and for producing Elton John biopic Rocketman (2019). Better Man promises to ‘offer an introspective look into the experiences that shaped Williams, both on and off stage,’ and will star the flamboyant and headline-attracting singer and actor as himself with his own songs re-interpreted and recontextualised in the film.
