Taron Egerton Is Playing Elton John In Biopic 'Rocketman'

Scott Eastwood To Star In Ecstasia

THR is reporting The 'Fast 8' actor will be joined by Matilda Lutz as a couple who live in a world where love no longer exists during their final days together before their love expires.

After tackling the world of illegal street racing in Fast 8, Scott Eastwood is switching to Hollywood's sci-fi lane.

The actor, who is poised for a breakout year with a string of high-profile projects scheduled for 2017, is set to star in Wayne Kramer's Ecstasia. He will be joined by Italian actress Matilda Lutz (The Rings) as a couple who live in a world where love no longer exists during their final days together before their love expires.

Kramer (The Cooler, Running Scared) also wrote the screenplay.

The film marks a reteaming of Eastwood and Sentient Entertainment's Renee Tab and Christopher Tuffin, who recently completed the heist thriller Overdrive with the actor and Ana de Armas. Tab and Tuffin are producing Ecstasia alongside Matthew Chausse and Eastwood.

Production is scheduled to begin in spring 2017 in South Africa. Ingenious, Film Afrika and Red Sea Media will finance.

The project will be introduced to buyers at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival. UTA, which reps Eastwood, is handling domestic rights, while Red Sea will sell international rights.

After playing supporting roles in Suicide Squad (as Lieutenant GQ Edwards), Oliver Stone's Snowden and Ben Affleck's Live by Night, Eastwood — the son of Clint — has graduated to studio movie leading man. He recently wrapped Fast 8, where he plays a newly created character who fills the void left by the death of the franchise's Paul Walker. Eastwood also will star in Pacific Rim: Maelstrom alongside John Boyega.

Lutz also is having a moment, most recently having toplined Paramount's third installment of The Ring franchise, this time titled Rings (the horror film opens Oct. 28). She also recently starred in Gabriele Muccino's Summertime.

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…
