Elton John is being considered for a role in The Secret Service, a film adaptation of the comic book series directed by Matthew Vaughn.
The news comes via the Sun, which reported that Elton's role would be in a major fight scene. A source says that the director is looking to cast against type and thinks John would be just such a choice.
"He wants to turn the films into a franchise, so getting big names on board will help boost its profile," said the source. "Seeing Elton fighting will be movie gold. He's a great addition."
Colin Firth and Michael Caine have already been confirmed for the film, with cameos from Mark Hamill and director Ridley Scott rumored. Leonardo DiCaprio is also said to be considering the film.
