Legendary singer Sir Elton John is all set to portray his own eccentric life in a new biopic, entitled 'Rocketman'.

The legendary singer and his partner David Furnish teamed up with playwright Lee Hall to create the movie, which will tell the story of Elton's life through his music.

Furnish will produce along with Steve Hamilton Shaw, while John will be the executive producer.

"Rocketman will be a radically different kind of biopic," Contactmusic quoted Shaw as saying.

"It will be as unique as Elton's life, told in a non-linear and hyper-visual manner that will transport people through the many intense experiences, some wonderful, some not, that helped define Elton as an artist, musician and man," he added.
