Elton John is set to make a sci-fi horror film in which aliens invade a Jane Austin-style period drama.
The singer will act as executive producer and oversee the music for ‘Pride and Predator’, which is being made by his own Rocket Pictures.
“It felt like a fresh and funny way to blow apart the done-to-death Jane Austen genre by literally dropping this alien into the middle of a costume drama,” John’s partner and co-producer David Furnish told Variety magazine. “He stalks and slashes to horrific effect.”
Rocket Pictures also have an animated Shakespearean spoof
in production called Gnomeo and Juliet, starring James McAvoy as a lovelorn gnome.
