John wants Downey Jr in biopic of his life

Biopic of Elton's life confirmed

A film on the life of veteran musician Elton John is soon to be under way.

John has confirmed that the script has already been written and is hoping the film will be made in the next three years.

The 63-year-old has his sights on Robert Downey Jr to play him in the biopic.

The new dad told Bang Showbiz "I'm quite old now so there'd have to be two or three actors and they'd have to vary in weight. Robert Downey Jr. could maybe play me at a certain stage."

John also said he was hoping the biopic would have a surrealistic tone, as his life has "kind of been crazy".
