Theatricality and deception are powerful agents to the uninitiated… but we are initiated, aren’t we?: Bane*
In a world where Ben Affleck can impersonate Batman, it only makes sense the guy who portrayed the Cape Crusader’s nemesis Bane becomes no other than Elton John… interesting turn of events, isn’t it?
British actor Tom Hardy (‘Band of Brothers’, ‘Black Hawk Down’ and ‘The Dark Knight Rises’) is set to star the upcoming biopic of Sir Elton Hercules John, ‘Rocketman’, according to The Telegraph and Sky News.
Elton John will be taking part in the project as executive producer. Principal photography is expected to begin in late 2014 under the direction of Michael Gracey and no release date has been announced yet. Gracey has not directed any big Hollywood film according to our intelligence reports but has taken part in several projects as visual effects supervisor and digital compositor.
Rocketman uh? At first we thought that would be the name of a spin-off film featuring Howard J. Wolowitz from ‘The Big Bang Theory’… it could work out, think about it!
