1) Bane is Rocket Man

Tom Hardy will play Elton John

Yes, Tom Hardy (he of Bronson, The Dark Night Rises and Warrior fame) is to play Elton John in a film of his life. The piece is being penned by Lee Hall who was behind Billy Elliot.

The film is happening with the co-operation of Sir Elton so one can’t help but wonder if this will just be a vanity project but it’s not as if they’ve cast someone ridiculous to play him, oh wait.
