Director Dexter Fletcher has certainly thrown himself into biopic of gay music legends recently, even if it was partially by accident. He ended up taking over direction of the Queen/Freddie Mercury biopic Bohemian Rhapsody, and he’s also behind the lens for the long-gestating fantastical look at a young Elton John, Rocketman.
Here’s the brief synopsis: #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.’ As you’d expect from Elton, this is not your typical biopic, with the whole thing taking place in a larger than life universe.
The film’s due in cinemas May 2019. Take a look at the first teaser trailer for the movie below.
