A month ago, word was that Justin Timberlake was #1 on Elton John's wish list to portray the "Benny and the Jets" singer in an upcoming biopic. Now, it sounds like Jt is all but signed up for the role, but is awaiting word on a director before he fully commits.
According to E! Online, John's husband and producing partner, David Furnish, said the two music stars have been in serious discussions about the project.
"We're searching for a director," Furnish said. "It's important we all share the same vision ... Elton and Justin have had conversations about it. Justin also says he has to feel comfortable with the director and the director has to be comfortable with Justin. The chemistry is really important. »
