Elton John has revealed that he wants trouser snake Justin Timberlake to play him in the upcoming biopic.
The singer started preparing for a musical biopic about his life, to be titled Rocketman.
John and partner David Furnish have teamed up with playwright Lee Hall to create the movie. Furnish will produce alongside Steve Hamilton, with John taking on an executive producer's role.
Coming up with a list of the ten best is a somewhat tricky task, in that most biopics fall firmly into the 'terrible' category. Even those that have made this list can be called into artistic question. But, without doubt, all of these films have left an indelible mark upon Hollywood, from Gary Oldman breaking through in Sid and Nancy, to a new generation realising the tortured genius of Ian Curtis in Control.
From The Buddy Holly Story, through The Doors, up to Walk the Line, these are our ten favourite music biopics. It's hard to say if a film about the Gallagher brothers would join this list should their story ever be told, but it would sure be interesting finding out.
