Elton John has indicated a biopic based on his life has gotten the green light and is in the works. So, when it comes to casting Elton, it sounds like he is keeping his eyes on the prize. And by that we mean Justin Timberlake!
Elton told the Los Angeles Times
, "I've got a wish list of people. Number one on my wish list is Justin Timberlake
because he played me before in a David LaChapelle
video of Rocket Man
and was superb."
Actually, the movie will include songs from his career and may have some new ones, too! It'll be written by Lee Hall, the same writer who wrote Billy Elliot.
In true creative form, the singer said it'll be a "surreal" take on his life instead of a factual recollection. "It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out," he noted.
What do you think about JT landing the lead role? We bet he could do a pretty darn good version of "Crocodile Rock!"
