Tom Hardy and Elton John appeared together yesterday at a presentation at the American Film Market in Los Angeles. The pair were there to pitch “Rocketman,” the biopic about the musician starring Hardy as Elton, to buyers.

The project is being pitched as a “larger-than-life movie musical spectacle” and is expected to be a mostly celebratory portrait of John and his work. Filming on the project begins next Fall for a 2015 release through Focus Features in the United States.
