Elton John In Talks With Netflix For 'Rocketman' Sequel


A new Elton John documentary will focus on the stories that Rocket Man didn't.

Titled The Pillars of Hercules, the doc will serve as a companion piece to the 2019 biopic, focusing on "stories within the band" during Elton's rise to fame in the 1970s.  Co-creator and longtime Elton John guitarist Davey Johnstone says he held off on releasing the doc for years so as not to interfere with Rocket Man.

The doc includes never-before-seen footage of Sir Elton alongside stars like John Lennon.  The producers are currently in talks to release it on Netflix.
