Sir Elton John is penning a film musical for Ben Stiller – about a gay man with Aids.
The legendary singer wrote the score for the Broadway production of The Lion King, as well as the 2005 stage adaption of Billy Elliot.
And now the Rocket Man star, who has been with partner David Furnish for 15 years, is working on a controversial new film musical for actor/director Stiller.
He writes on the GQ style blog: “It’s about a guy on Broadway who is gay, has HIV and AIDS, and has to go back and face his wife and his kids that he left. It’s very funny.”
And anticipating what critics might say about the musical, he added: “No, it’s very funny. The premise doesn’t sound funny, but it is. All right?”
