‘Billy Elliot’ writer Lee Hall says his new biopic about Elton John will tell the singer’s life story “from birth to rehab”.
Actor Tom Hardy has been roped in to play the legendary musician, reported BBC online. “I’ve been working on it with Elton for long time. It’s an absolutely huge, crazy Technicolor affair. Starring Tom Hardy as the flamboyant musician, the film will be about all the trouble he got into,” he said.
John, 67, admitted of being a monster at the height of his drug addiction.
He entered rehab in the 1990s, after which his career saw a resurgence and he had two children with his partner David Furnish, via a surrogate mother.
