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.
