Elton John to Make AIDS Funny


Following last week's exciting announcement of Seth Rogen's in-development cancer comedy, Elton John tells GQ he's currently writing a film musical about AIDS: "It's about a guy on Broadway who is gay, has HIV and AIDS, and has to go back and face his wife and his kids that he left," he says. "It's very funny. The premise doesn't sound funny, but it is." The movie will apparently star Ben Stiller and be the second terrible-sounding project announced this week with his name attached. Also, now would be a good time to call your agent about that bird-flu sitcom pilot you wrote.
