Elton John has done his share of movie appearances, and now he's finally set to be portrayed in a movie dedicated to telling his story. "Rocketman" will take us on a journey from his early years through his major albums of the 1970's including "Honky Chateau" and "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road."
Taron Egerton, who made his mark in 2014's Kingsman: The Secret Service, and its 2017 sequel, will play the legendary musician. Egerton is also a singer, but has been taking lessons to at least help him "create some semblance of a performance that is at least reminiscent of him." Elton himself has said he's never heard anyone sing his songs better than Taron!
Also set to appear in the film is Jamie Bell, Richard Madden, Gemma Jones, and Bryce Dallas Howard.
"Rocketman" is set to hit theaters May 31st 2019.
