EXCLUSIVE: First Character Details For Elvis Presley In Baz Luhrmann’s Upcoming Biopic

Exclusive: with production set to begin in January 2020, The GWW has obtained character details for the titular role in the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic.

 Vulnerable, but with a strong sense of his own destiny. Although shy, he has the enthusiasm of someone who dreams of being big. This is Elvis before he’s famous and adopts his famed persona…

The studio is searching for an actor between the ages of 18 and 29 to portray the King of Rock’n’Roll.

‘The Great Gatsby’ director Baz Luhrmann is directing the pic, which will star Tom Hanks as Presley’s manager, Tom Parker. Parker both helped Presley rise to fame and hurt him in the process. He never let Presley tour outside the US and took 50% of Presley’s earnings. No release date for the project has been set.
