Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

The Gilmore Girls Returning To Netflix

THR is reporting The Gilmore Girls are returning to the small screen.

Netflix is in negotiations to revive the beloved series with creator Amy Sherman-Palladino and original stars Lauren Graham and Alexis Bledel as mother-daughter pairing Lorelai and Rory Gilmore.

According to multiple sources, Netflix is looking to approach the revival as four 90-minute movies as opposed to a 10-episode series. The Warner Bros. dramedy, which launched in 2000, has been a strong performer for the streaming service.

Gilmore initially ran for seven seasons and 153 episodes on The WB/CW, six of those under Sherman-Palladino before she exited following a contract dispute with the studio. A Netflix revival would be Sherman-Palladino's opportunity to not only return to her own series but also to have the final word.

Speaking candidly about the latter during a reunion panel at the Austin TV Festival earlier this year, Sherman-Palladino noted: "It's always a bummer when you don't get to end it. I had hoped maybe that there would have been a call, 'Hey, it's the last episode, do you want to come back?' And there wasn't. But that's OK, that's not the way it works in Hollywood where there are rules."

Though many of the original actors are in talks to return, too, Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James) is not expected to be one of them. Since Gilmore wrapped in 2007, McCarthy's career has skyrocketed, with star vehicles on TV (Mike & Molly) and in film (The Heat, Ghostbusters).

The news comes as Netflix preps a revival of Full House, aptly titled Fuller House, another series that's performed well for the service. It's also said to be working on another season of Arrested Development, which initially ran on Fox.

Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Regular listeners to the Empire Podcast (sorry about the whole Call Me By Your Name theme ear worm, incidentally) will recall that we had Taron Egerton as a guest on the 300th episode, recorded in front of an audience on Valentine's Day. He talked up his hope that Elton John biopic Rocketman would finally come together, and now Paramount is closing a deal to finance and distribute the film worldwide.

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…
