<img src="https://https://static2.srcdn.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2018/05/Taron-Egerton-joins-Elton-John-biopic.jpg" /><p>Paramount has set a May 2019 release date for its biographical Elton John film, <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/rocketman/"><strong><em>Rocketman</em></strong></a>. A movie about the fabulously flamboyant singer, songwriter, and composer has been a longtime in the making and several big names has bee floated to play John onscreen in the past. Tom Hardy came the closest to doing so back in 2013, but that version of <em>Rocketman</em> petered out in pre-production and would-be freshman director Michael Gracey went on to make his big entrance on another biographical musical, <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/the-greatest-showman/"><em>The Greatest Showman</em></a>. The project was suddenly revived last year when <a href="https://screenrant.com/rocketman-elton-john-biopic-taron-egerton/"><em>Kingsman</em>'s Taron Egerton</a> came aboard to play Sir Elton instead and it's been mostly smooth-sailing since then.</p><p><a href="https://screenrant.com/elton-john-biopic-rocketman-taron-egerton/"><em>Rocketman</em> was formally green-lit</a> by Paramount Pictures back in April, with Lee Hall (<em>Billy Elliot</em>) writing the script and Dexter Fletcher directing. Egerton is also officially onboard now too, having only just appeared with the real-life Sir Elton in last year's sequel <a href="https://screenrant.com/tag/kingsman-2/"><em>Kingsman: The Golden Circle</em></a>. Further, the movie is clearly (forgive the wording) ready for blastoff, what with Paramount having gone ahead and scheduled <em>Rocketman</em> to hit theaters in just under a year from the time of writing.</p> <strong>Click to continue reading <a href="https://screenrant.com/elton-john-rocketman-movie-release-date/">Elton John Biopic Rocketman Sets May 2019 Release Date</a></strong><br /><br /> <p>The post <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/elton-john-rocketman-movie-release-date/">Elton John Biopic Rocketman Sets May 2019 Release Date</a> appeared first on <a rel="nofollow" href="https://screenrant.com/">ScreenRant</a>
