"Justin Timberlake to Star as Elton John in Rocketman"Justin Timberlake is allegedly in negotiations to portray the role of John Elton in the forthcoming biopic film ‘Rocketman’.

It seems that, the wish of John Elton casting Justin Timberlake in his biopic film ‘Rocketman’ could eventually come true. The ‘My Love’ singer Justin Timberlake is getting closer to clinch the role, as he has already been in negotiations with the British musician Elton john. David Furnish, the husband of 64-year-old musician said that, Timberlake and Elton had discussions about it. He further added as Justin saying that, he need to feel comfortable with the director and should be same with the director as well, as the chemistry is important.

Furnish also reasoned the delay in production saying, Elton has been looking out for a potential director to helm the biopic. Justin Timberlake portraying Elton John in ‘Rocketman’ evolved, after the ‘Candle in the Wind’ singer has revealed that the ‘Social Network’ actor is his top choice of playing his role in his biopic. The reason behind this is, the ‘In Time’ actor played as Elton in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocketman’ which was superb, Elton confessed.

Elton John also revealed that, he once considered Baz Luhrman to rope him in as the director, but was unable to as he was busy with his working schedule. Besides, he also announced in September 2011 that, he would serve as the executive producer of his biopic film ‘Rocketman’, which would be made as a musical featuring Elton’s hits. The movie would also mark the reunion of Elton John and screenwriter Lee Hall, who have worked together for ‘Billy Elliot’ in 2000s with Jamie Bell.
