Crikey, we knew there had been loads of rumours, but it's finally been confirmed that Justin Timberlake will play Elton John is an exciting new film about his life. And the person confirming it was none-other than Elton's other half, David Furnish. And we trust what he says. Whoop!
David revealed, “Elton and Justin have had conversations about it. We're searching for a director — it's important we all share the same vision. Justin also says he has to feel comfortable with the director and the director has to be comfortable with Justin. The chemistry is really important.”
Sir Elt' is also excited by this great news and has already informed the world to expect some fun, flaring “Moulin Rouge”-esq scenes, because quite frankly "surreal" is what he's after.
He expained, "It's going to be a surreal look at my life, not just a factual look — more in the manner of Moulin Rouge. I just don't want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn't been like that. It starts with me going into rehab and ends when I come out".
Wow! It’s going to be pretty amazing seeing (the recently-engaged) Justin pull some Elton classics out of the bag – and we reckon if anyone can pull off playing the legend, it’s JT.
Ooh, we’re excited already! Bring it on Mr Trousersnake! We expect the pair will be discussing the finer details at Elton’s annual Oscar Party tomorrow night. Swanky
