Elton John Biopic 'Rocketman' Starring Tom Hardy to Be Made Into a Broadway Musical


The upcoming biopic Rocketman starring Tom Hardy as Elton John will eventually be turned into a musical for Broadway and London's West End, reports:

The project, currently titled Rocketman the Musical, will feature the classic rock legend’s canon and has Tony-winning Billy Elliot book writer Lee Hall on board.

Initial casting and a detailed timeline for the project have not yet been revealed. Old Vic Theatre Chief Executive Sally Greene said to The Sun that the forthcoming biopic of the same name is the priority, and the stage project will follow.

The Daily Mail adds:

A spokesman for the star this morning said the project was 'way, way off' but said 'lots of exciting things' were to in the works. 

It comes after Hollywood heartthrob Tom Hardy told of his nerves at undertaking the central role in a film about the singer's life.

The 36-year-old actor admitted he finds singing difficult, telling the newspaper: 'I'm not really a singer. I have no idea really.'

Put on Your Fire-Retardant Armor for the New 'Mad Max' Trailer: VIDEO


Moviegoers next summer will revisit the cult classic Mad Max franchise in a new film, Mad Max: Fury Road directed by George Miller. Miller directed Mel Gibson in the original 1979 film.


Miller had originally planned to cast Gibson in a fourth Mad Max film (after The Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome), but the project spent years in development and when a new script from British comic creator Brendan McCarthy emerged, work began on Fury Road, eventually roping in Tom Hardy, Charlize Theron, and Nicholas Hoult who all appear perfectly cast for this franchise. No special guest cameo from Tina Turner though, as far as we know.

Shirtless, Tatted, Bearded Tom Hardy Covers 'Esquire': PHOTOS


Tom Hardy rips his shirt off for this month's Esquire in advance of his new film Locke, and tells the magazine that the rough image he projects isn't all he's cracked up to be:

"I have always been frightened with men. To the point where I couldn't go into a gym because of the testosterone and I felt weak. I don't feel very manly. I don't feel rugged and strong and capable in real life, not how i imagine a man ought to be. So I seek it, to mimic it and maybe understand it, or maybe to draw it into my own reality. People who are scary, they terrify me, but I can imitate them. I'm not a fighter. I'm a petite little bourgeosis boy from London. I don't fight, I mimic."
