Robbie Williams on set at Docklands Studios Melbourne – first look

Currently filming in Melbourne, Better Man is an introspective look at the rise, fall and resurrection of UK superstar Robbie Williams.

Principal photography has started on Better Man, the highly anticipated musical film based on the life of Robbie Williams, with Australian filmmaker Michael Gracey at the helm. Gracey’s debut film, The Greatest Showman, is one of cinema’s most successful live-action musicals, having taken more than $435M at the global box office.

The project marks Williams’ feature film debut as he stars as himself alongside rising star from the UK, Jonno Davies (Hunters, Kingsman: The Secret Service), who plays Robbie Williams in his younger adult life, with British stage and screen veterans Steve Pemberton (Inside No. 9, Killing Eve) and Alison Steadman (The Kings Man, Roald & Beatrix: The Tail of the Curious Mouse). The film’s Australian cast includes Damon Herriman (Judy & Punch, The Tourist), Kate Mulvany (Hunters, Elvis) and Anthony Hayes (War Machine, The Light Between Oceans).
