The hunt is currently on for a new 007 after Daniel Craig made his last appearance as Bond in No Time To Die.
The Golden Globe winner stepped down from the play a month into its run earlier this year.
“We are absolutely astounded… it’s 2022!” the play’s producer said about the decision.
The Rocketman star's run has been beset by difficulties, including fainting on stage on opening night.
The Rocketman star is expected to return to the show next week after a period of isolation.
The Rocketman star had a reassuring message for fans after his second performance.
"I would appreciate it if anyone who was in the theatre just said that I gave such a committed, electrifying performance that my body couldn’t handle it."
The Rocketman star was tended to by a doctor who happened to be in the audience after fainting on stage.
British talent won a host of the major prizes at the Golden Globes in Hollywood. Sam Mendes’ war epic 1917 shocked many by winning two prestigious awards, while Rocketman saw Taron Egerton pick up Best Actor in a musical or comedy. And in the television awards, wins for Fleabag, The Crown and Succession saw a good night for the British contingent continue.
Once Upon A Time In Hollywood bagged the most awards on the night, but some big British names came out on top too.
