The Eddie the Eagle star, Taron Egerton who also starred in both 'Kingsman' films has been cast in the upcoming Elton John Biopic 'Rocketman'.

Rocketman has been in the works since 2011.

Tom Hardy was also announced as the lead role in the movie in 2013, but he later pulled out after he struggled with the singing in the movie saying 

“I’m not a singer. I have no idea really. I’m really trying because of Rocketman but it’s hard to open my mouth in that way.”
