Tom Hardy to play Elton John in biopic

The Elton John biopic, Rocketman, finally has its leading man. Sources say Tom Hardy will play John in the film to be released by Focus Features. Hardy seems to be most known for his roles in The Dark Knight Rises, Warrior, and Inception.

Not much is known about Rocketman just yet, but we do know the film will focus on Elton John's rise to fame from childhood to present day. John is expected to re-record a lot of his memorable hits to match the emotion and tone of the film. There is no word just yet on whether Hardy will perform any of the music himself but I would expect him to do so. He is very versatile.

Rocketman is scheduled to begin filming in Fall 2014 and will be directed by Michael Gracey.
