British actor Tom Hardy, 36, is to play Sir Elton John in a biopic of the iconic British singer's life called Rocketman.

The film is being made with the cooperation of the 66-year-old musician, who is an executive producer and is expected to re-record some of his hit songs for the feature.

Rocketman - in the works since 2011 - will begin shooting late next year and will be directed by Michael Gracey.
