Elton John Allowing Biopic Screenwriter ‘Free Rein’ with Script
Tom Hardy will portray Elton John in an upcoming movie about the eccentric singer-songwriter, and the man writing the screenplay to the upcoming biopic says the veteran rocker has been very cooperative and accommodating.
He adds that John has actually been helpful in giving him the inside story of some of his darkest times.
Hall recalls that John has shared "his private diaries that nobody had seen from when he was in rehab." He says the movie, titled "Rocketman," will tell John's story "from birth to rehab," and will include "all the trouble he got into."
John is serving as an executive producer for "Rocketman," and is developing the project through his film company, Rocket Pictures. Shooting is expected to begin later this year.
