Elton John's lead a rather interesting, sometimes controversial, life in the public eye for the better part of four decades now. So, naturally, Hollywood is set to make a biopic about the eccentric piano man being pitched as a "biographical musical fantasy that weaves together the life of Sir Elton John and his music." According to early reports from HitFix, producers are looking in a surprising direction for their leading Rocketman.

"Right now, the project is out to Tom Hardy. That doesn't mean they've made him a formal offer yet, or even that he's interested," says the site. "But it's an intriguing possibility." Bane doing "Crocodile Rock?" Yeah, we'd say that qualifies as intriguing.
