Tom Hardy is singing ”all the time” as he prepares to play Sir Elton.

 

The Dark Knight Rises actor will portray the pop legend in a new biopic, Rocketman, and he admits he has been taking extensive singing lessons to get ready for the film’s numerous musical numbers.

Quizzed whether he’s had vocal training, he said: ”Oh, all the time. I’m always singing.”

The star also revealed production on the film is still in the early stages but Elton, who is co-producing the feature through his Rocket Films production company, has been in touch.

Hardy explained to BANG Showbiz: ”It’s all sort of under the radar at the moment, to be honest, but yes, I am talking to Elton.”

Rocketman, which is being directed by Michael Gracey, will tell the tunesmith’s story from young child prodigy to musical icon.

Elton will re-record some of his classic songs for the fsoundtrack, but it’s not yet known whether Tom’s favourite song will make the cut.

He added: ”My favourite Elton song, I think it’s Honky Cat.”
