Director Is Chosen For Elton John Biopic

ELTON-JOHN-010Rocketman, the upcoming Elton John biopic, will be directed by Michael Gracey, a man known for his talent in commercial making. As an artist known for his dance based work with Gap and T-Mobile, he will take on something a bit different, describing John’s life from a five-years-old and on.

The film will go more deeply into the years of John’s wild popularity and way of shaking up the music industry with his elaborate dress and style of writing music. With Gracey’s work in working with large dance groups for his commercials, the film will also include thoughtful dance scenes to ply out the extravagant times.

“Everyone knows and loves Elton John’s music, but the true story of his life is so incredible that it can be only described as a fantasy,” Gracey told Rolling Stone. John has said that he would love Justin Timberlake to play the fantasy part based of Timberlake’s performance in “This Train Don’t Stop Here Anymore”, but the actors are yet to be determined.

Gracey is also direct the P.T Barnum biopic, The Greatest Show On Earth. As a director based in music based film, he will have the opportunity to work with High Jackman, who just recently sang in his Les Misérable as Jean Valjean.
