Happy birthday to Elton John, who was born on March 25th, 1947 in Middlesex, England.

Elton’s forthcoming “Rocketman” biopic will follow his incredible career from a five-year-old prodigy to a superstar.

According to rollingstone.com, the musical movie will be directed by Michael Gracey, a music promo and commercial director,  who says:

Everyone knows and loves Elton John’s music, but the true story of his life is so incredible that it can only be described as a fantasy,” Gracey said. “His journey from impossible dreamer to stardom and uncontrollable excess is something only a musical film can capture, and I’m so excited to be the one to tell his story.

Who will play Elton?

According to an article at huffingtonpost.com, Elton himself has a pick, “Number one on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before.”
