Written by Chief Editor.

Sherlock Gnomes is released in UK cinemas today (Friday, May 11). It is already out in the States.

This is the sequel to 2011's Gnomeo and Juliet. Both Elton and David Furnish served as producers on the flick.

Another movie, Rocketman, may start filming this sunmer. It's being directed by Dexter Fletcher, who previously worked with the star, Taron Egerton, on the biographical drama Eddie the Eagle.

 Taron has said that he plans to perform all of Elton's songs live onset.

"I'm going to do it all. I'm going to do it on set as well," the 28-year-old shared. "We're going to use a variety of techniques but I will always be singing on set. No miming. I'm just not interested in doing it that way."

As announced previously, the Rocket Man has also been working on a new musical with Jake Shears. He says it is ''waiting to go.''

In addition, the performer has two warehouses full of old stage costumes he wants to display at exhibitions worldwide.
