Justin Timberlake to Play… Elton John?

What’s better than Justin Timberlake just doing music or Justin Timberlake just doing movies? Justin Timberlake doing music AND movies! And if all goes Elton John‘s way, JT will be doing both. Elton, who is currently working on his biopic, revealed in a recent interview with the Los Angeles Times that his Rocketman biopic project was still in the works, and when asked about the film, Elton revealed:

“We’re making an announcement about that very, very soon. We have a director on board, and then it’s just going to be a matter of getting the script exactly the way we want it. Lee Hall has written a script – he wrote Billy Elliot – and then we’ll start trying to cast and plan.”

When asked who would play him, Elton replied:

“I don’t know. I’ve got a wish list of people. Number One on my wish list is Justin Timberlake, because he played me before in a David LaChapelle video of ‘Rocket Man’ and was superb.”
