Synopsis

The story of Elton John's life, from his years as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music through his influential and enduring musical partnership with Bernie Taupin.

This film first entered development back in 2011 and has had several rumored names attached. At one point, James McAvoy was to play Elton John, and later it was Tom Hardy's role. Paramount officially green lit Rocketman in April of 2018, with Taron Egerton cast in the lead role. It will be released in May 2019.

Elton John is one of the most popular musical artists of all-time. In his career, he has sold more than 300 million records and received five Grammy awards. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1994.
