Sir Elton John's life story to be made into a movie

Sir Elton John may be another musical icon to have his life story told on the silver screen, he explained during a recent interview. 

The 'Your Song' star appeared as the guest on Chris Evans' Radio 2 show on Friday, January 29 and revealed that a script for the potential biopic has already been started:

"I'd just like to make a really great film about my life story,"

"We have a great script already by Lee Hall ... It will be more of a fantasy – Moulin Rouge type of stuff. Obviously, it's not going to be your normal, run-of-the-mill film. My life's been so surreal, from buying a football club to God knows what."

Lee Hall wrote the screenplay for the classic film 'Billy Elliot' and this won't be his first time working with Sir Elton as they both contributed lyrics and music respectively to the film's stage adaptation.
