Well, the flick will reportedly document the highs and lows of his career, all through musical sequences, according to Entertainment Weekly

"We've always thought there was a wonderful cinematic opportunity to tell Elton's life story," Furnish told EW.

"But we wanted to wait until the time was exactly right. Elton feels very excited about doing it now. He's in a very happy place in life right now and thinks it's a good time to artistically reflect on the past." 

It's too soon to tell exactly when the project will be ready for production, however.
