Wanna See Taron Egerton as Elton John in Rocket Man?

Posted by September 28, 2018 Comment

Although we know the film release date has been pushed back a bit, we’ve got our first look at Taron Egerton as Elton John in the upcoming biopic, Rocket Man.  And you know what? Taron looks pretty great.

Posted last night on the official Twitter account for the film, Rocket Man shared this first image from the film:

Dexter Fletcher (Bohemian Rhapsody) is directing the film for Paramount, which will apparently be a time-hopping story all about Elton John’s rise to fame and subsequent life.

Rocket Man is set to hit theaters on May 31st 2019.
