Matthew Vaughn, who is co-producing the upcoming Elton John biopic Rocketman alongside Paramount Pictures!
Elton John biopic Rocketman is described Filled with “sex, “drugs, and rock’n’roll.” Read on…
The Queen biopic drops this fall to chronicle the life of Freddy Mercury and now Elton John will be getting his run-in theaters.
Sir Elton John life will play out on the big screen and we hope he lets us see all the antics that made him the Rocketman in the 70s, 80s, and 90s.
What we are hearing is that the movie is leaving nothing out, so it expects Rocketman to be raunchy. Elton John had a wild career, and it’s great to know that the movie about him will not be holding back.
Rocketman is set to star Taron Egerton, who has previously starred in other Marv productions such as the Kingsman franchise and Eddie the Eagle. Egerton is not just a great choice for the role due to his impressive resume, but also due to the fact that he has worked with Elton John in the past. Both Taron Egerton and Elton John acted together in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, so their connection may be helpful for Egerton.
Another great aspect for the film is that Rocketman’s director Dexter Fletcher has a long history with Matthew Vaughn and Marv Studios. Fletcher played a supporting villain role in the first Kick-Ass movie in 2010, and later went on to direct Eddie the Eagle under Marv.
Rocketman is slated to release in theaters May 17, 2019.
