One way to get Justin Timberlake singing again is to cast him in a musical biopic!
Timberlake is set to take on the role of Elton John as soon as a director of John’s choice is chosen for the project.
The legendary Elton John is all set to turn his life story into a major movie-musical with a team consisting of his film producer partner David Furnish and “Billy Elliot” writer Lee Hall.
Timberlake had previously been named as Elton’s first choice for the lead role but the news has now been confirmed by Furnish, as long as JT has chemistry with the chosen director.
David Furnish tells E! Online, “We’re searching for a director. It’s important we all share the same vision. Elton and Justin have had conversations about it. Justin also says he has to feel comfortable with the director and the director has to be comfortable with Justin. The chemistry is really important. There’s no race to make this. We’re just going to take the time to make it right.”
