Subject: Elton John plans new Billy Elliot film as the musical turns 10

Written By: Philip Eno on 05/13/15 at 10:38 am

Elton John has revealed plans for a big screen adaptation of his stage show Billy Elliot the Musical.

Speaking after the show's 10th anniversary performance, Sir Elton told the BBC: "It would be lovely to do a film version.

"There are other songs that we had had to leave out of the musical that would be great in the film."

The birthday show in London on Tuesday night featured performances by six Billy Elliot actors - past and present.

It was attended by dozens of previous cast members from the past decade, many of whom joined the current cast on stage at the Victoria Palace Theatre.

Billy Elliot tells the story of an 11-year-old boy who follows his dream to become a ballet dancer against the expectations of his working class family in County Durham during the bitter 1980s miners' strike.
