Justin Timberlake set to star in Sir Elton John biopic

Sir Elton John's film producer partner has confirmed that Justin Timberlake has agreed to star in a biopic on the legendary musician's life providing they can find a director he is comfortable with. 

David Furnish, who will help turn Sir Elton's life story into a big screen movie-musical with the help of 'Billy Elliot' writer Lee Hall, explained to E! Online that the 'SexyBack' superstar is excited about the project and now it's all about finding a suitable director:

"Elton and Justin have had conversations about it. Justin also says he has to feel comfortable with the director and the director has to be comfortable with Justin. The chemistry is really important. There's no race to make this. We're just going to take the time to make it right."

"We're searching for a director. It's important we all share the same vision."
