''Gnomeo & Juliet'' Player Hopes to Portray Elton

Monday 7 February 2011 @ 16:29 - GMT

James McAvoy could be set to play Elton in a biopic about the rocker's life.


The Scottish star, who found fame in the UKs version of Shameless, has been offered the part in the movie, which is being written by Lee Hall.


Elton told the Sunday Express he would love McAvoy to accept, but in the meantime, the hunt for a suitable actor continues.


''James could do it and he's already offered. I'd just like to make a really great film about my life story,'' he said.


''We have a great script already by Lee Hall, who wrote Billy Elliot. Obviously it's not going to be your normal run-of-the-mill film because my life has been kind of crazy, and I think it's important to do a surrealistic take on my life. I'd love to do that. This business is so incredible.''
