London-based prodco Fulwell 73 is going back in time to create a new documentary about the infamous pop band, Bros.

The group, which consisted of twin brothers Matt and Luke Goss and Craig Logan, went from unknowns to the biggest boy band in the world in less than 12 months after the release of their debut album in 1988.

The band was the youngest ever to headline Wembley Stadium, and their debut album Push was certified seven times platinum in their native UK and topped the charts in twenty other countries.

Unfortunately the group also has a tragic history, as the twins’ little sister was killed by a drunk driver during the height of their success. Amid rumors of fighting, death threats, being sued by their former bandmate and school friend, the duo imploded in mess of debt and internal dispute.

In October 2016, band members Matt and Luke announced they would perform a one-off show in London. It sold out in seven seconds.

Containing exclusive interviews with Matt, Luke and other key figures involved in the Bros journey, the film will chart the life and times of the band through the use of personal and public archive stills and footage. The film will draw on talking head interviews and archive footage from the vaults. Fulwell 73 have also issued a request for anyone with industry or fan archive footage of the band to please get in touch.

The feature documentary is directed by Fulwell 73′s David Soutar (Harry Styles Behind The MusicI Am Bolt), and produced by Fulwell 73 partner Leo Pearlman.
