We knew that Elton John is a hell of a music man and a pretty good behind the scenes guy for films as well (he was the executive producer on Gnomeo and Juliet), but did you know that he could might be able to do fight scenes?
Yes, I know color shocked too.
Turns out that the “Rocket Man” will be making a cameo appearance which will feature him a huge fight scene. The movie, The Secret Service, will star Colin Firth, Leonardo DiCaprio and Michael Caine and will be directed by Matthew Vaughn. According to reports, John isn’t the only star that will be making a cameo in the film; the director is reportedly lining up a number of big name to help boost the film’s box office numbers (but with the price of movie tickets recently).
“The Secret Service is going to be a big British movie so Matthew wants to include some iconic British stars,” a source told The Sun about the film. “He wants to turn the films into a franchise, so getting big names on board will help boost its profile. Seeing Elton fighting will be movie gold. He’s a great addition.”
John isn’t the only one being persuaded as of right now; it seems that Star Wars’ Mark Hamill and director Ridley Scott are also sought after.
This might come as some good news from John’s cam because the singer had to cancel all his summer tour dates, including a massive concert in London’s Hyde Park, after being diagnosed with appendicitis.
As for The Secret Service, there has been no details given about the film other than the actors who are rumored to be in it (all according to our favorite movie site, IMDB) and is an adaptation of Kick Ass author Mark Millar’s comic book of the same name.
