Tom Hardy May Play Elton John in "Rocketman" Biopic

Mad Max. Bane. Bronson. And… Sir Elton John?

That could happen. "Rocketman" is being developed right now by director Michael Gracey and executive producer Elton John, and it's being described as "a biographical musical fantasy that weaves together the life of Sir Elton John and his music."

Bernie Taupin is a key supporting role, and John Reid is also evidently key to the story, but obviously, the main draw here is going to be seeing someone try to bring to life the flamboyant contradictions of Elton John's performing persona. After witnessing what Michael Douglas did with the role of Liberace, I can imagine a number of actors lining up to try to get a chance to play Elton.

Right now, the project is out to Tom Hardy. That doesn't mean they've made him a formal offer yet, or even that he's interested, but it's an intriguing possibility. The film will evidently feature a large role for a young Elton John as well, and the wish list for that includes guys like Ben Foster. That's strange, and it doesn't really line up in terms of one of them believably aging into the other. Then again, if this is all seen through a fantasy filter, maybe that's not something they care about.

I don't care for biopics about living people but this could be interesting
