Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

First Images From Kindergarten Cop 2

Of all the blockbusters heading our way in 2016, we know the one you're most looking forward to is Kindergarten Cop 2, starring the mighty Dolph Lundgren. So it's with no deficit of Christmas cheer that we bring you this handful of new stills and a new synopsis.

It's 25 years since Arnold Schwarzenegger first went undercover at a nursery and yelled at some kids as Detective John Kimble. This time it's Dolph, playing a different undercover cop - Agent Reed - who has to infiltrate a different kindergarten to recover a flash drive containing sensitive information stolen from the Witness Protection Programme. Reed must deal not only with the kids, but also the school's "politically correct environment" as the Albanian bad-guys close in. Damn that political correctness. Curse those Albanians.

This isn't the first time Dolph has appeared in a sequel to a film that first starred a fellow Expendable. A few years ago he also turned out for Uwe Boll's In The Name Of The King: Two Worlds, taking the lead from Jason Statham. Maybe this time he was after some light relief following grimly violent recent efforts like Skin Trade (with Michael Jai White and Tony Jaa) and War Pigs (with Luke Goss and Mickey Rourke). It's good to shake things up a bit sometimes.

Kindergarten Cop 2 shot this year in Vancouver, with Michael Don Paul (Jarhead 2: Field Of Fire, Sniper: Legacy, Tremors 5: Bloodlines) directing from a screenplay by David H. Steinberg (American Pie Presents: The Book Of Love). Expect it straight to video/digital sometime next year.

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…
