Music biopics seem to be the rage these days, undoubtedly fuelled by the success of Straight Out of Compton and Bohemian Rhapsody. In 2019, we will see another music biopic hit the big screen this time telling the story of Elton John with Taron Egerton channelling the iconic rock and roller.
Rocketman is an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years. The film will no doubt be a dramatization of events surrounding the life of Elton John such as his rise to fame, his well-storied drug addiction and partnership with Bernie Taupin.
Director Dexter Fletcher is charged with bringing this tale to life and he’s roped in some pretty big names such as Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Bryce Dallas Howard, and Gemma Jones along for the ride.
Rocketman arrives in cinemas in May 2019.
