Singer turned actor Justin Timberlake is taking Elton John's offer to portray him in the biopic Rocket Man very seriously.
John has previously showed his keenness to have Timberlake portray him in the film to be made on his life and now the latter is giving thought to the huge part, reported E! online.
"Justin is taking it very seriously. He's working with his people to figure out exactly how to respond," a source said.
It would not be the first time that Timberlake will play the legendary British singer. He previously portrayed his younger self in the video for song This Train Don't Stop Here Anymore.
An official statement about the film is expected to be made in the coming weeks, but John said that it will not be a straight-forward biopic.
"It's going to be a surreal look at my life, and not just a factual look at my life, more in the manner of a Moulin Rouge! I just don't want it to be a normal biopic because my life hasn't been like that," he said.
