Billy Elliot

Sir Elton John is in talks to take Billy Elliot back to the big screen.

John wrote the music for the theater adaptation of the 2000 movie, which was written by Lee Hall and directed by Stephen Daldry.

Now the trio want to take the story about a young ballet dancer full circle by re-making the movie as a musical.

Speaking after the Broadway adaptation of Billy Elliot The Musical scooped ten Tony Awards on Sunday (07Jun09), Hall revealed, "We've been talking about making the musical back into a movie - but we'd have to think long and hard how to do it."

Billy Elliot was released back in 2000 and followed a young boy's dreams of being a dancer. Starring the unknown Jamie Bell in the lead the role the film made the young actor a star.

The film was a critical and commerical hit and went on to be nominated for three Oscars; Best Supporting Actress, Best Director and Best Writing in a Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen as well as finding success at the Baftas.
