Elton John to turn action star for new film?

London: Singer Elton John is reportedly set to star in a film `The Secret Service`, where he will be seen brawling in a huge fight scene.

Director Matthew Vaughn wants to hand John a cameo in the comic book adaptation which will be released next year, reported Sun online.

"`The Secret Service` is going to be a big British movie so Matthew wants to include some iconic British stars. He wants to turn the films into a franchise, so getting big names on board will help boost its profile. Seeing Elton fighting will be movie gold. He`s a great addition," a source said.

The original comics, written by Scot Mark Millar, include cameos by stars including Luke Skywalker actor Mark Hamill and legendary director Ridley Scott.
