I’m sure you already know that even Elton John biopic is coming. But what you probably don’t know is that John actually wants Justin Timberlake to portray him in the whole thing.
Sounds…logical? I mean, we all know Timberlake already played John in a David LaChapelle video of Rocket Man and legendary artist thinks – it was superb.
At this moment not much is known about this project except that it will combine the true story of John’s life with fantastical elements from his songs.
The project will be written by Lee Hall and executive produced by John himself.
But here’s how Elton John describes the whole thing:
“That would be a jukebox musical in earnest, maybe with a couple of new songs. You never know. Because it’s going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life, more in the manner of a “Moulin Rouge!”
He also adds: “I just don’t want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn’t been like that. And it only goes up to when I go into rehab in 1990. It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out.”
So, Justin Timberlake as Elton John, any thoughts?
