Elton John and David Furnish are prepping a big new project for their company Rocket Pictures, taking inspiration from probably their most obvious source: Elton John himself. Titled Rocketman, the new film will be a “biographical musical fantasy” telling the story of John’s colorful life and iconic career, from his start as a child piano prodigy in the ’50s to the earlier days of rock stardom. John and Furnish are set to produce the project with Steve Hamilton Shaw, also from Rocket Pictures. Billy Elliot scribe Lee Hall has been tapped to write the script. More details after the jump.
