London: Singer Elton John will make a biopic about his life titled ‘Rocketman’.

John and his partner David Furnish - who own production company Rocket Pictures - have teamed up playwright Lee Hall to create `Rocketman`, which will tell the story of John`s life through his music.

Steve Hamilton Shaw will produce the show along with Furnish.

“‘Rocketman’ will be a radically different kind of biopic. It will be as unique as Elton`s (John) 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," contactmusic.com quoted Shaw as saying.
