Elton John and Tom Hardy team up to tout Rocketman film

Tom Hardy may not have seemed like the most obvious choice to play Elton John  in the biopic Rocketman but he showed Tuesday (5 November)that he’s 100% on board for the project.

Hardy, whose films include Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, and Star Trek: Nemesis, appeared with John at a breakfast bash in Santa Monica attended more than 100 movie buyers.

The musical spectacle is due to begin production this fall. It will be directed by Michael Gracey from an original screenplay by Lee Hall and among the producers is John’s spouse David Furnish.

John himself is an executive producer and will re-record many of his classic hits for his life story.

Before stepping into Elton’s shoes, Hardy is playing the title role in Mad Max: Fury Road.
