¡Hola, comrades! Juan Cena here with another edition of Cubano Review! While El Presidente is in Boston rooting for fellow beard aficionados the Boston Red Sox, I’m manning down the fort here with breaking news of Inception and The Dark Knight Rises star Tom Hardy’s new role as Sir Elton John!
Yes, Bane is trading in his face mask and bomber jacket for for a feathered costume and bejeweled sunglasses. Hardy will be playing Sir Elton John in a new biopic called Rocketman. Well, if Hugh Jackman can play Wolverine in the movies, and The Boy from Oz’s Peter Allen on Broadway, who’s going to stop Hardy from playing the singer of “Crocodile Rock?” Certainly not Sir Elton, who will be re-recording his most famous songs for the film so Hardy won’t have to sing.
Wait, did I mention Hugh Jackman? Rocketman is being directed by Michael Gracey, who will also be directing Jackman in the P.T. Barnum biopic The Greatest Showman on Earth. Gracey has been better known for directing commercials, but looks to be an up-and-comer in the film world. He’s also attached to the Jim Henson biopic The Muppet Man.
Rocketman sounds like it could either be a very interesting film, or a total box office disaster, or both. Luckily, Hardy is taking over for Mel Gibson in the reboot of Mad Max, so he’ll be doing at least one film in the future involving death and destruction rather than piano playing.
