'Rocketman' is an epic musical fantasy about the uncensored human story of Sir Elton John’s breakthrough years, starring Taron Egerton, Jamie Bell, Richard Madden and Bryce Dallas Howard.
Egerton plays the living legend and music icon that is Elton John. The actor and 'Your Song' singer previously co-starred in 'Kingsman: The Golden Circle'. Egerton previously showed off his singing chops in the hit animated feature 'Sing' so we've no doubt that he's going to be terrific.
'Rocketman' is directed by Dexter Fletcher. Fletcher also helmed a great deal of 'Bohemian Rhapsody', though he received no credit for his work.
The screenplay for the film comes from Lee Hall, who penned 'Billy Elliott', 'War Horse' and 'Victoria & Abdul',
Rocketman opens in Irish cinemas this May.
