It’s been at least three years since anyone has made an unnecessary Elvis Presley biopic. The long national wait is over. Young Guns writer John Fusco has been hired to tell the story of the King for the 946th time.
Fusco is adapting Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley. The story focuses on Elvis’s formative years up until he entered the Army and strays away from the time he died while shitting.
Although there are a glut of Elvis films out there, I’d be interested in seeing one that focuses on his early life. Especially if it is done as thoughtfully as Walk The Line. And also especially if it doesn’t star Robert Pattinson. (Deadline)
