Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Trailer For The Documentary #CartelLand

The multi-billion dollar cocaine trafficking industry is much in the thoughts of filmmakers at the moment. The much-praised Sicario hits screens next month, while Triple Frontier is still bubbling about with J.C. Chandor possibly attached. Before either of those, however, comes possibly the starkest look at the subject of them all: the jolting, jarring doc Cartel Land.

Expect to hear plenty about this one in the coming weeks. Director Matthew Heineman took fly-on-the-wall documentary making to another level by embedding right in the middle of the flying shrapnel of Mexico’s Michoacán state. His aim was to chart the war between the citizen vigilantes – the Autodefensas – and the Knights Templar cartel that had inflicted huge damage on the region for many years.

Like Sicario, the film straddles both sides of the border between the US and Mexico. A further strand of the narrative focused on a small guerrilla force known as Arizona Border Recon. It’s led by military veteran Tim ‘Nailer’ Foley and aims to interdict the flow of cocaine into the American state’s Altar Valley. Figuring out who's actually on the side of the angels here is no easy task..

The film, which has been through at least one previous incarnation (Michael Gracey directing Tom Hardy in the lead) is reuniting the Eddie The Eagle team of Egerton, director Dexter Fletcher and producer Matthew Vaughn, who has been trying to get the movie made for a while, with Elton's blessing and the support of his company, Rocket Pictures.

Featuring a script by Lee Hall, Rocketman will follow the career of the artist formerly known as Reginald Dwight, from a prodigy at the Royal Academy of Music to a global superstar, through his influential and enduring musical partnership w…
