Must See 27/07/2020

Although before he played Sir Elton John in Rocketman, Taron Egerton had a bit of a name for himself in Hollywood, the role of Elton saw him soar to global success and become a regular household name.

And now, one year on, he is taking on another biopic - albeit the role of someone who is a bit less of a household name.

The new biopic Taron Egerton is starring in is titled Tetris, and it tells the story of the Cold-War era legal battle that took place surrounding the intellectual property of the well-known video game.

Taron Egerton will play Henk Rogers, who eventually won the rights to Tetris for himself and the man who originally created the game, who spent years fighting several different parties before he ended up getting paid.

It's tipped that Taron could make the film a bit of a box office success, even though this biopic role will involve a lot less singing.

Tetris is due to hit theatres in 2021.
