Air Supply getting biopic to mark 50th year
The Hall of Famers from Australia first worked together in a musical and have been friends for 40 years now.

MANILA, Philippines — Soft rock duo Air Supply will mark its 50th year since its formation with a biopic detailing the years Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock spent together in the industry.

The biopic will carry the title "All Out of Love: The Air Supply Story," aptly borrowing from one of the duo's most popular songs.

The movie will explore "the highs and lows of the band's career and their rise to international fame," from Russell and Hitchcock's early beginnings in Australia to their breakthrough in the United States.

Altit Media Group will serve as producers through Dean Altit with Barry Siegel, Jesse Weiner, and Julia Xu as executive producers.

Shooting is eyed to begin later this year in Australia and the United Kingdom in hopes of a 2025 release.

"What a great occasion to celebrate our 50th Anniversary! And a personal thrill for me to see Graham's songs be the basis for the biopic," Hitchcock said in a statement which Russell reciprocated and added, "The timing is so perfect."

Biopics of musicians have been popular in recent years like "Bohemian Rhapsody," "Elvis," "Rocketman," "Respect," "Whitney Houston: I Wanna Dance with Somebody," and most recently "Bob Marley: One Love."

Apart from "All Out of Love," Air Supply is best known for hits such as "Making Love Out of Nothing at All," "Every Woman in the World," "Here I Am," "Two Less Lonely People in the World," "Just As I Am," "Come What May," "The One That You Love," "Lonely Is The Night," "Lost in Love," and "Even the Nights Are Better."

Air Supply have performed in the Philippines several times over the years, the duo's most recent visit was just last December.
