Tom Hardy -- known for playing macho roles in films such as "The Dark Knight Rises," "Bronson," and "Warrior" -- is ready to wear a giant duck costume and play "Crocodile Rock."
The Brit actor will star as pop icon Sir Elton John in Focus Features' biopic "Rocketman."
John will exec produce the film, which will be produced by Steve Hamilton Shaw and David Furnish of Rocket Pictures and Lawrence Bender for AI Film. Len Blavatnik will co-executive produce, along with AI Film CEO Aviv Giladi and Focus CEO Peter Schlessel.
"Rocketman" is scheduled to shoot in fall 2014.
