This project has taken a while to find the right notes (sorry). Brewing since at least 2011, it seems that finding the right person tackle the personality, sequins and sunglasses of Elton John has been the struggle to get this thing going. At one point, Justin Timberlake was eyed as a possibility, but that didn't seem right at all.

Why wait until you're dead and let someone else tell the story of your life? For Elton John, he's gonna make sure his life is done right on the big screen by executive producing the "Rocketman" biopic his own damn self through his shingle Rocket Pictures (most recently behind "Gnomeo & Juliet"), with Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish lending a helping hand.
