James McAvoy Favourite to Play Elton John in Biopic

James McAvoy Favourite to Play Elton John in Biopic

-Men: First ClassJames McAvoy could be swapping Cerebro for centre stage, in the musical biopic of Sir Elton John’s life and career. While nothing is confirmed at this stage, The Hollywood News reports that McAvoy is favourite to play the lead in the aptly titled Rocketman, penned by Billy Elliot writer Lee Hall.
The musician himself and his partner David Furnish will act as producers on the project alongside Steve Hamilton, who intends to portray Elton’s life as, “an artist, musician and man.”
McAvoy – who is famous for his roles in X–Men, The Last King of Scotland and Atonement – is a surprising choice for the part, having never worked on a musical movie before.
However, if the Scot is cast in Rocketman’s titular role he will join the musical biopic hall of fame, home to the likes of Hollywood actors Joaquin Phoenix, Jamie Foxx and Marion Cotillard.
No further details about filming, or confirmed release dates have been issued as yet.

Young fans get VIP treatment from Sir Elton

 For Janice Ross of Baker Settlement, getting tickets to see Elton John in concert at Sydney's Centre 200 September 13 was a dream come true.  But what was to happen to her two sons, David, 12, and Danny, 15, at the event would turn out to be even more special.
 Ms Ross was one of what was probably tens of thousands who jammed phone lines and the internet when tickets for Sir Elton first went on sale in mid-July, but she knew the odds of actually getting any were slim.
 "It was a fluke really," she explained. "There was a glitch in the ticket system, so for the first hour all four of us went on our electronic equipment trying to get tickets and the phones weren't being answered and we were being booted off the electronic system."
 While everyone else in the family gave up trying, Ms Ross persevered for another half-hour before she eventually called a relative in Sydney who told her the system had crashed.
 "I figured everybody was like me and had just stopped for awhile, so around one o'clock I decided I was going to go back on and I checked two different ways that said it was sold out," she recalls. "I just kept clicking. You could tell that things weren't working right, then all of a sudden it said, 'How many tickets would you like?' It was just a stroke of luck."
 Two months later, with eight tickets in hand, the Ross family and four friends converged on Centre 200 for the concert where, out of the blue, another, even bigger surprise awaited them, all because of something Ms Ross did "just on a whim."
 The day before the event, she went to a store and had special T-shirts made up for her two sons. Danny's bore his Christian name, Daniel, which is also the title of one of Sir Elton's biggest hits, on the front, while David's carried the moniker "Daniel's My Brother," prominent words from the song's chorus.
 "I thought maybe they'd get a picture taken," she laughed. "I didn't know exactly. I hadn't been to a concert for many a day."
 As it turned out, those T-shirts attracted a lot more attention than the family ever dreamed.
 "We were just sitting down and this guy come up to us and said, 'How would you and your brother like two front-row seats, because Elton John would like your shirts,'" David said.

 The man also told the boys that they couldn't sell the tickets or trade them and that only they could use them.
 Before the show started, Danny and David were shuttled to the front of the stage and spent the entire two-hour concert barely six feet away from the pop superstar as he performed a selection of his greatest hits, including "Daniel," which he dedicated "to the two boys wearing the shirts in the front row."
 The excitement, however, didn't end there.
 Ms Ross had taken her husband's copy of Sir Elton's 1975 album "Captain Fantastic and the Brown Dirt Cowboy" in the remote hope of getting an autograph, and had given it to David before they proceeded to their front-row seats.
 "When the guy came with the tickets David asked, 'Can we get autographs?' and he said, 'Probably,' and he remembered," she laughed.
 Prior to doing his encore, Sir Elton came to the edge of the stage and gestured for the record, which he signed and passed back to the two young fans, an expression which someone in the audience captured on video and later posted on YouTube.
 It was a fitting conclusion for a night which was truly one to remember.
 "It was surreal," Danny said.

Andy Roddick and his wife Brooklyn Decker sandwich in Elton John at the 6th annual Andy Roddick Foundation Charity Gala on Wednesday (September 21) at the ALC Live Moody Theater in Austin, Texas.
The event, which featured a cocktail reception, dinner, live auction, and a performance by Elton (who sang at Andy and Brooklyn’s wedding), helped raise more than $1 million for children’s organizations!
Elton hit the stage to belt out some of his classics before closing the set with a tribute to The Lion King. He also praised Andy for his philanthropic efforts, even calling him a “mench” in between songs.
Brooklyn, 24, later caught a flight back to Atlanta where she wrapped up filming What to Expect When You’re Expecting.

Well, the flick will reportedly document the highs and lows of his career, all through musical sequences, according to Entertainment Weekly.
"We've always thought there was a wonderful cinematic opportunity to tell Elton's life story," Furnish told EW.
"But we wanted to wait until the time was exactly right. Elton feels very excited about doing it now. He's in a very happy place in life right now and thinks it's a good time to artistically reflect on the past."
It's too soon to tell exactly when the project will be ready for production, however.

Com uma plateia menor que a da cantora Katy Perry, Elton John abriu o quarto show do Palco Mundo do Rock in Rio 2011. O show iniciou pouco antes da 0h de sábado, com a música Saturday Night's Alright, seguida de I'm Still Standing.

Após o clássico Levon, de 1971, Elton John dedicou Tiny Dancer para todas as "dançarinas da plateia". No início da canção, conhecida atualmente pela trilha sonora de Quase Famosos, de 2000, um fã subiu ao palco. Carismático, o "Piano Man" apenas sorriu e não se atrapalhou com a situação.
Com um blazer preto bordado em diversas cores, Elton John mostrou energia, vibrando ao fim de cada canção. "Estou feliz por estar aqui no Rio, esta cidade maravilhosa, disse para a plateia".
Antes do show do veterano do pop, parte do público que ocupava a pista do Palco Mundo começou a deixar o local, liberando o caminho para quem quisesse ver Elton John mais de perto. O músico britânico fecharia a noite inicialmente, mas o festival anunciou na semana passada que o encerramento ficaria a cargo da caribenha Rihanna.
O show virou uma espécie de oásis de clássicos entre shows de duas cantoras do século XXI. Mesmo aos 64 anos, sir Elton John mostrou boa forma, uma voz potente e muita habilidade no piano.
Rock in Rio 4
Considerado um dos maiores festivais do mundo, o Rock in Rio cresceu, deixou o Brasil, mas retorna em 2011 em sua quarta edição.
A festa da música começa nesta sexta-feira (23) com nomes renomados da música pop. No palco mundo, cantam Claudia Leitte, Katy Perry, Elton John e Rihanna. No sábado (24), é o rock pop de NX Zero, Stone Sour, Capital Inicial, Snow Patrol e do Red Hot Chili Peppers que agitará o público.
Fechando o primeiro fim de semana do Rock in Rio 4, muito metal e peso com Glória, Coheed and Cambria, Motörhead, Slipknot e Metallica, no domingo (25).
A segunda bateria de shows começa com clima dançante e muito soul de Janelle Monáe, Kesha, Jamiroquai e o veterano Stevie Wonder, na quinta-feira (29). O pop novamente é convocado na sexta-feira (30) ao som de Ivete Sangalo, Lenny Kravitz e Shakira.
No sábado (1/10), o Maná, Maroon 5 e o Coldplay se revezam com os brasileiros do Skank e o cantor Frejat no palco mundo. A despedida do Rock in Rio 4 fica com Pitty, Evanescence, System of a Down e Guns N´Roses.

Elton John confirms warts 'n' all biopic

It was confirmed last night that Elton John has been working on a biopic of his life.

Elton John and David Furnish - the men behind biopic
In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, John's partner, David Furnish, spoke of the project which has the working title of Rocketman and has been written by their Billy Elliot collaborator, Lee Hall.
"We've always thought there was a wonderful cinematic opportunity to tell Elton's life story," Furnish told the US magazine. "But we wanted to wait until the time was exactly right. Elton feels very excited about doing it now - he's in a very happy place in life right now and thinks it's a good time to artistically reflect on the past."
The film will chronicle the extraordinary life and seismic times of the iconic rock star. It will also feature a number of fantastical sequences, nor surprising considering its larger-than-life subject. With the script now ready to roll, John and Furnish are looking for a director and star (or, it is suggested, stars) to play EJ.
"Elton has lived a very extraordinary and unique life," says Furnish of his 64-year-old spouse, who has battled his own demons in a rollercoaster career. "You can't tell his life story without going to the dark places. We're going to touch on those too. But at the end, we want people to come away from the cinema feeling inspired and uplifted."

No Rock in Rio, veterano Elton John faz show intimista e esfria plateia


O Rock in Rio não é o cenário ideal para um veterano como Elton John. Seus hits mais recentes são mais velhos do que Rihanna, e as 100 mil pessoas na Cidade do Rock vieram, quase todas, para ver a cantora.
Os muitos hits do repertório poderiam, na teoria, garantir um bom show a Elton, mas sua postura bonachona sentado ao piano esfriou a jovem plateia que vinha de pular muito com as popices coloridas de Katy Perry.
Se a apresentação fosse em um ambiente menor, conferindo intimidade ao cantor e uma plateia também veterana, tudo seria mais fácil.

Claro que hits como "Rocket Man", "Skyline Pigeon" e "Goodbye Yellow Brick Road" emocionam, mas deixam um gosto de quero mais na fatia madura do público.
Ver Elton John hoje, comportado demais no palco carioca, faz os fãs pensaram como seria espetacular vê-lo no auge, há quase 40 anos, com os óculos escuros malucões e altíssimos saltos nas botas.

Rihanna circulando livre, leve e solta pelo Rock in Rio? Não, na verdade trata-se de uma sósia. A Rihanna cover se chama Rose Cohen, é paulista, tem 22 anos e há dois circula o mundo se apresentando como sósia da cantora. "Já me apresentei até na Itália. Mas aqui no Rock in Rio não vou fazer nenhuma performance, não", contou Rose. Um sósia do cantor Elton John também estava por lá.

Os incríveis óculos de Sir Elton John…

22 set 17h11
O Blog da Hilde já entrou no clima do Rock in Rio. Amanhã acontece a abertura oficial do festival. E, certamente, será a noite da garotada jovem, por conta das musas pop internacionais, Katy Perry e Rihanna. Mas os mais velhos também poderão reviver seus tempos de juventude com Elton John e, quem sabe, o público teenager não se rende a Sir Elton? Nunca é tarde demais para conhecer aquele que, ao lado de Michael Jackson, carrega o título de Rei do Pop, não é mesmo?...
Todo bom ícone do Pop que se preze possui algo muito marcante em seu estilo. Com Sir Elton não poderia ser diferente. Desde os anos 70 ele coleciona uma infinidade de óculos nada discretos. Calcula-se mais de vinte mil em sua coleção! UAAAAU! Nos anos 70, eles costumavam ser mais exagerados, com formas curiosas, glitter e lentes coloridas. Seu estilo de se vestir não deixava nada a desejar. Elton adorava usar ternos com a gola da camisa pra fora do blazer, bem típico dos anos 70, gravatas borboletas, bordados, plataformas, plumas  e muuuito glitter. Hoje em dia, Sir Elton está mais reservado, um gordinho discreto, até os óculos deram uma encolhidinha, mas ainda sim, ele não os dispensa. Confiram, abaixo, os modelos mais divertidos, curiosos e cool da carreira de Elton John. Inspirem-se! Quero ver todo mundo trabalhado no "óclão" e no carão para curtir o Rei amanhã, hein! E que venha o Rock in Rio!!!...

James McAvoy deve interpretar Elton John em filme sobre o músico

Elton John não é daqueles astros que vão esperar chegar ao fim da vida para serem homenageados. O próprio, que se apresenta no Rock in Rio, se uniu ao roteirista Lee Hall para produzir o filme Rocketman, que contará a vida do astro. E, por mais que a ideia seja que vários atores interpretem o músico em diferentes fases de sua carreira, um especialmente deve ter um papel especial no longa-metragem: James McAvoy. E o roteiro deve relembrar todos os principais momentos de Elton John. O produtor Steve Hamilton Shaw declarou que o longa-metragem vai ajudar a definir Elton como “um artista, um músico e um homem. O longa será único como a vida do próprio astro e vai transportar as pessoas através de todas as intensas experiências que definiram o que ele é”. Shaw acrescentou que muitos sucessos do músico serão utlizados para contar partes de sua vida como seu casamento com David Furnish e o vício em drogas.
