Elton John biopic to be released in May 2019

Published: 25th May 2018

Rocketman, a biopic on legendary musician Elton John, will be released on May 17, 2019. Taron Egerton is portraying the singer at various stages of his life, including a five-decade-long career. 

Dexter Fletcher is directing the film from a script by Lee Hall. Elton John is producing it with Marv Films and Matthew Vaughn, alongside the singer's Rocket Pictures' partner and husband David Furnish.

Shooting on the project will begin in August and Egerton will be singing some of Elton's most famous compositions himself for it.

Discussing the tone of the film, the 28-year-old British actor has teased that it will be a "fantasy musical" inspired by the musician's journey to the top rather than a straightforward biopic.
