The story of the two member band Wham!, formed by George Michael and Andrew Ridgeley which was one of the most successful English bands of the 1980's, will now be brought to the big screen.

According to a source, the film, which is already in production under a British film company, will follow the duo's climb to fame and will also portray their amicable split in 1986, Daily Express reported.

Casting is being done at the moment to fill the role of Michael, added the insider.

With hits like 'Freedom', 'Last Christmas' and 'I'm Your Man', the band sold more than 25 million records worldwide between 1982 and 1986, and became the first Western pop group to perform in China in 1985.
