Tom Hardy Will Star in an Elton John Biopic

Which is which?

Back in May, we heard that Tom Hardy was in consideration to star in an Elton John biopic. Well, it’s happening! Entitled Rocketman, it was described as "a biographical musical fantasy that weaves together the life of Sir Elton John and his music." The film was written by War Horse scribe Lee Hall and will be directed by newbie Michael Gracey. Production will begin next fall. Until then, sing it with us: “And I think it's gonna be a long, long time / Till touchdown brings me 'round again to find / I'm not the man they think I am at home / Oh, no, no, no, I'm Gotham’s reckoning / Gotham’s reckoning, burning out his fuse down here with Batman.”
