Taron to Play Elton John in Biopic ‘Rocketman’ at Paramount


Written by Tiffany on April 20 2018

Taron Egerton will star as in Elton John in “Rocketman,” the biopic about the famed singer, with Paramount Pictures nearing a deal to finance and distribute worldwide.

Dexter Fletcher, who replaced Bryan Singer to direct the Freddie Mercury biopic “Bohemian Rhapsody,” is attached to helm the project.

The film, written by Lee Hall, will include John’s emergence as a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to becoming a music superstar and his partnership with songwriting collaborator Bernie Taupin. John broke out with the 1973 album “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road,” which topped the charts for two months in the U.S. and U.K.

Matthew Vaughn and his Marv Films will produce, along with John and his Rocket Pictures partner David Furnish.

The deal was put together by Wyck Godfrey, president of Paramount Motion Pictures Group. Production is set to start this summer.
