Go Behind the Scenes of the Elton John Biopic ‘Rocketman” with Taron Egerton (Video)
Elton John is giving fans a behind the scenes sneak peek of his biopic, Rocketman, today with a clip of Taron Egerton singing one of his iconic songs.
In the clip, Egerton (who portrays Elton) is in a recording booth performing “Tiny Dancer.”
The clip also contains interviews with Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and music producer Giles Martin.
“Elton said, ‘I don’t think I’ve heard anyone sing my songs better than Taron,’” Martin says. “And the great thing about Elton is that he wants Taron’s interpretations of his songs.”
Adds Egerton: The thing about playing someone so beloved, all we can do is give our heartfelt interpretation of his life and his music.”
The film is produced by John, David Furnish, and Matthew Vaughn.
Hot on the heels of Queen’s Bohemian Rhapsody and the forthcoming Mötley Crüe biopic The Dirt, Rocketman arrives in theaters on May 31.
