Elton John to make 'Rocketman' biopic
Rocketman, named after one of the piano player's most well-loved hits, will be created for the silver screen by John and his partner David Furnish.
Songs such as Your Song, Candle in the Wind and Sorry Seems to be the Hardest Word, will all feature in the flick, which will also be written by playwright Lee Hall.
Commenting on the project, producer Steve Hamilton said: "Rocketman will be a radically different kind of biopic.
"It will be as unique as Elton's life, told in a non-linear and hyper-visual manner that will transport people through the many intense experiences, some wonderful, some not, that helped define Elton as an artist, musician and man."
As of yet there is no director or lead actor attached to the role, although reports suggest that James McAvoy, star of Atonement and the latest X-Men film is a top choice.
While Elton has not yet been the subject of a feature film, he is no stranger to the movie business. He wrote the soundtrack to the Disney film The Lion King and his track Your Song featured in the film Moulin Rouge.
