A biopic about the life of piano player Elton John is in the works, the star has revealed.

He told BBC Radio 2 that he has been working on putting together a script with writer Lee Hall, who penned Billy Elliott, reports the Guardian.

Elton said the film is likely to reflect some of the more bizarre aspects of his colourful life.

"It will be more of a fantasy - Moulin Rouge type of stuff. Obviously, it's not going to be your normal, run-of-the-mill film," the piano player explained

"My life's been so surreal, from buying a football club to God knows what."

He added that he has now gained some "balance" in his life thanks to the support of partner David Furnish, which means he has been able to move on from some of the wild antics that characterised the earlier part of his life.

Elton has a busy touring schedule ahead of him in 2011, with dates planned in Switzerland, France, Canada and the US in the early part of the year.

The singer is booked to play shows in Cardiff, Glasgow and Shrewsbury during June, while he also has concerts scheduled in Germany, Slovenia and Croatia.
