The star and the man he's playing...
Rocket Pictures has provided 411 with a behind-the-scenes photo from the Elton John biopic Rocketman, which will star Tom Hardy. The photo shows Hardy and John standing together at the American Film Market presentation this morning in Santa Monica.
The film is "a larger-than-life movie musical spectacle that tells the story of a child prodigy turned music legend."
John will re-record many of his classic hits to go along the emotional beats of the film. The film will be co-financed by AI Film and directed by Michael Gracey (The Greatest Showman on Earth), from a script by Lee Hall (War Horse, Billy Elliot).
Rocketman will be produced by Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish of Rocket Pictures and Lawrence Bender for AI Film, the production and financing company created out of the acquisition of Icon by Len Blavatnik's Access Industries. Elton John and Blavatnik will executive produce along with AI Film CEO Aviv Giladi and Focus Features CEO Peter Schlessel. It will shoot in fall 2014.
