Elton John Biopic is in the Works

The life of The Rocket Man will be on the big screen.

In an interview with Los Angeles Times, Elton John confirmed the possible production of a biopic on the singer’s life and career.

“That’s very much in the works. We’re making an announcement about that very, very soon,” said John. “We have a director on board, and then it’s just going to be a matter of getting the script exactly the way we want it. Lee Hall has written a script—he wrote “Billy Elliot”—and then we’ll start trying to cast and plan.”

And who is on his wish list to play The Rocket Man? Justin Timberlake.

“I’ve got a wish list of people. Number one on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and was superb,” commented John.

It will not be the first time the singer’s life will be portrayed in a film. In 2007, the autobiography documentary “Elton John: Me, Myself & I” highlighted the singer’s reassessment of life after the death of his friend, Princess Diana. And next month, a Cameron Crowe-directed documentary on the making of the album “The Union” will be airing on HBO.
