Sir Elton JohnSir Elton John is set to become the latest musician to have his life-story told on the silver screen. The singer revealed he is currently working with 'Billy Elliot' writer Lee Hall on the movie which will take the form of a musical.

Speaking on BBC Radio 2 (via the Guardian), John told host Chris Evans his hopes and vision for the project. "I'd just like to make a really great film about my life story. We have a great script already by Lee Hall ... It will be more of a fantasy -- 'Moulin Rouge' type of stuff."

He continued, "Obviously, it's not going to be your normal, run-of-the-mill film. My life's been so surreal, from buying a football club to God knows what."
