Rumors have been circulating around the Elton John biopic for quite some time now, but it's finally confirmed that British actor Tom Hardy will be playing Sir Elton John. The film has been in talks for a couple of years now, and Hardy was one of the lead rumors to spread on playing the lead. The film is going to be entitled Rocketman and is set to shoot in 2014.
According to Empire, Lee Hall will be writing the script and Michael Gracey directing. Elton John himself will also be producing it and providing remastered versions of his own songs. With John himself on board with his Rocket Pictures production company, Rocketman should be a surefire hit.
Rocketman will tell the story of Elton John from child growing up into musical prodigy, according to USA Today. The movie won't be a standard biopic but will include plenty of visual flare which only seems right for the legendary musician. What do you think? Is Tom Hardy the perfect fit for Sir Elton John, or would you have though of someone different?
