Elton John’s multi-media production company, Rocket Pictures is currently scouting for a talented child actor to play a young Sir Elton John in the super star’s upcoming movie-musical biopic.
Producers behind “Rocketman” have launched a search for a child musician/piano player/actor between the ages of 6 and 10 to play the flamboyant star, whose real name is Reginald Dwight, in the long-awaited film about his life and career.
Reggie is a shy boy from Pinner, London, whose life is transformed when he is first put in front of the piano as a five year old. His immense talent leads him to the Royal Academy of Music and later, as he pushes his awkward, insecure, younger self to one side, to a desire to be a rock ‘n’ roll legend as he renames himself Elton John. ‘Rocketman’ is a fantasy-inspired retelling of Elton’s story where reality is skewed by an excess world and choreographed musical sequences.
All Boys between the ages of 6 and 10 who play the piano and act are invited to review the audition details at RocketPictures.co.uk.
