Is James going to play Elton?

The new Elton John biopic ‘Rocket Man’ has fans anxiously waiting to find out who will be portraying the famous singer in the film about his life and although producers have been looking at all sorts of people for the role, it sounds like they may finally be focusing in on someone.
