Singer Robbie Williams is “sure” there will be a second reunion of Take That, the band he was with before.
In an interview with The Sunday Times, the singer said the reunion would depend on how his former bandmates received “Better Man,” a biopic about Williams directed by “The Greatest Showman” director Michael Gracey.
Take That was formed in 1990 with band members such as Gary Barlow, Howard Donald, Mark Owen, Jason Orange and Williams. In 1995, Williams left the group for a solo career. In 1996 Take That disbanded. In 2006, Take That regroups, without Williams. And in 2010, Williams joined the band for the hit album “Progress.” In 2011, Williams left the band again, out of court.
The reception of current band members Take That in the biopic “will have a lot to do with what happens next. If this movie was my life from 2010 to 2022, it would be a love letter to Gary Barlow. But I talk in the film about what I thought when I was 16, 17, 18 years old. We have a very complicated relationship, me and the boys. A loving and jovial relationship, but I will always be the youngest, the smallest in the litter,” Williams told The Sunday Times. Williams had first left Take That when she was 21.
“What I don’t want to do is reopen old wounds, but I also don’t want to confine myself to a truth that was mine, in his time,” added Williams. “I can’t be the only c*** in the movie. If I rewrite everyone to be adorable, then I’m the only asshole, and I can’t have that.
Williams’ latest album ‘XXV’, which explores 25 years of her solo career, is out now. The “XXV” tour across the UK and Ireland begins on October 9. There are plans for a studio album, and a Netflix documentary series about him is in the works.
