Lee Hall in movie deal for Elton John's life

The writer of Billy Elliott, recently in conflict with Opera North over alleged homophobia, is off to Hollywood, we learn.

He’s writing a biopic of his pal and show angel, Sir Elton. Provisional title: Rocketman.

I wonder if they’ll film early scenes at the Royal Academy of Music, where young Elt was taught to tinkle, or if it’ll be cheaper to rebuild the RAM facade on set in LA.
