New York - Tom Hardy will play Elton John in a biopic titled ‘Rocketman’.
Focus Features announced Hardy's casting as the iconic piano man on Wednesday.
The film is planned to begin shooting late next year.
The 36-year-old British actor is well respected for his wide-ranging talent, but his brawny, tattooed frame makes him an unconventional choice. Hardy is most famous for playing the terrorist Bane in ‘The Dark Knight Rises’. He has showcased a muscled masculinity in films like ‘Warrior’, ‘Lawless’ and ‘Bronson’.
‘Rocketman’ is being made with the cooperation of the 66-year-old John, who's an executive producer on the film. - Sapa-AP
