Elvis Presley biopic set for 2020Hipworth
It’s now or never…or later in 2020
There’s been lots of singers that have been given the biopic Hollywood treatment such as Elton John with Rocketman, Bohemian Rhapsody with Freddie Mercury and Walk The Line with Johnny Cash. Now we have a new biopic coming up for the late great Elvis Presley! also known for his movie ‘Blue Hawaii’ where he plays a character that gets the girl in the end with the assistance of his whimsical friend.
It’s said that actor Austin Butler will be acting as Elvis, other actors considered were Harry Styles, Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller, Aaron Taylor-Johnson and rapper G-Eazy. Also rumoured actor who is playing Colonel Tom Parker is America’s most loveable actor – Tom Hanks.
The film will concentrate on the relationship with Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley. One of the most interesting musician/manager relationships in music.
Baz Luhrmann will be directing the film and they set to start filming at the beginning of 2020. The title for the film is yet undecided but I’ll bet it’s going to be ‘Now or Never’, ‘Blue Suede Shoes’, or ‘My manager treats me like shit and I think I should leave him but he threatens to sue me whenever I bring it up’.
