Elvis Presley

MOVIE Could Finally Happen

... Says Lisa Marie

Johnny Cash got a movie. So did Ray Charles. And now it seems that Elvis Presley could finally be the next big music legend to get on the big screen ... so says his daughter.

Lisa Marie Presley was out in SoHo last night when we asked why Hollywood was taking so long to make a major box office feature about her dad, a la "Walk the Line" or "Ray."

But Lisa Marie gave an answer that should be pretty encouraging to Elvis fans -- suggesting that there's finally some real "talk" about getting the movie made.

There are reports that Mick Jagger is trying to spearhead an Elvis movie called, "Last Train to Memphis" -- focusing on The King's early years -- but it's unclear if that's what LM is referring to.

Now ... who's hungry for a peanut butter, banana and bacon sandwich??

She's been trying to get a movie together ever since Walk The Line came out. There is no one to play Elvis, imo.

I don't think they'll ever get someone right for the part of Elvis.

Too bad Andy Kaufman isn't with us anymore. LOL Blake Shelton would be an interesting choice to play Elvis, but he's too tall. Hopefully they'll steer clear of the impersonators, er...I mean "Elvis Tribute Artists".

If they shoot the scene where Elvis dies taking a dump like Hitch**** did with the Psycho shower scene they might have something.

That would be awesome. But Elvis fans take the King very seriously. So it would have to get the "Ray" treatment. EXCELLENT CASTING IS A MUST!! It will probably be extremely hard to find an actor to play him, that doesn't give off the Vegas impersonator vibe. And also a great screenplay, that will make people who are not fans love the movie as well. It will be interesting to see what happens.
