Tom Hardy has signed up to play Elton John in a new biopic of his life.
Elton himself is on board, and is planning to re-record a number of his songs for the soundtrack.
"Tom is quickly becoming known as one of the world's most versatile actors, and like others at the top of their craft, he has proven his ability to transform himself completely into the character or subject found in the material."
"We are confident that Tom will embody the physicality and spirit of Sir Elton. This, in conjunction with the creative team led by Michael and Rocket Pictures, will provide the foundation for something that will be a unique cinematic event."
