Elton John and David Furnish - Gnomeo & Juliet Interview
Music legend Elton John is no stranger to working on children's filmshe won an Oscar for the music he wrote for The Lion King. John and his husband, David Furnish, have collaborated as producers to bring us the new 3D animated family film, Gnomeo & Juliet. It's an animated reworking of the classic William Shakespeare teen love story, set in the world of garden ornaments and it features a soundtrack comprised of original and classic songs by Elton and his longtime collaborator, Bernie Taupin. And, if the veteran rocker has his way, we haven't heard the last of his catalog on the big screen. Apparently, a script has been completed and plans are underway for an Elton John biopic in the near future.
Tribute spoke with Elton and David in London, England about their producing venture, reviving Elton's classic music for the film and the possibility of a entire "Glee" episode featuring Elton's classic music.
