Who better to produce an Elton John biopic than...Elton John?
John's company Rocket Pictures is currently working on a movie about the artist's life called Rocketman.
But here's the best part: Tom Hardy is the frontrunner to star.
Who doesn't want to hear Hardy with a Bane breather on, mumbling his way through Pinball Wizard?
FilmDistrict definitely does. The distribution company is near a $10 million dollar deal for the U.S. rights to Rocketman.
The film will reportedly start with a young age-five Elton as a musical prodigy. According to producers, it will be a unique biopic that is heavily visual and non-linear.
Lee Hall will provide the script, with Michael Gracey directing.
Would you see a Tom Hardy Elton John biopic? Who would be your first choice to play the pop sensation?
Stay tuned for more news on Hardy's involvement.
