GOSSIP: Elton John bio-musical in the works?

According to The Sun, an Elton John bio-musical is aiming for Broadway and West End runs.

Currently titled Rocketman The Musical, the show will feature the singer's music. Lee Hall, who collaborated with John on Billy Elliot The Musical, is said to be involved in the project. 

The Old Vic's Sally Greene told The Sun that the forthcoming biopic of the same name is the priority, and the stage project will follow. Tom Hardy looks set to star in the movie. 

John has a long association with theatre. He won a Tony Award for writing the score of Aida and wrote music for Billy Elliot The Musical which celebrated its tenth birthday in the West End last week. His other stage projects include Lestat and The Lion King.
