The last I heard the planned Bitmap Brothers games for GBA have been canned

Only Speedball 2 made it to GBA and its a nice conversion.

It would have been nice to see some of the other games converted too.

I must admit I don't get why the Bitmaps are so popular. Apart from Speedball 2 and The Chaos Engine (which are genuine classics) all their other stuff was incredibly average. Banshee and SWIV walk all over Xenon 2 for fun, presentation and character, for example. Along with Team 17 they're the over-rated Amiga developers ever, in my opinion.
