Elvis Presley Movie: Director Revealed!

Elvis Presley will have his story told in a big screen biopic called Fame & Fortune – and now John Scheinfeld has been named to direct the project!

THR reports that the film will begin casting in the late fall and aims to hit the big screen next year – the same year that marks the 35th anniversary of the music legend’s death.

Fame & Fortune is an adaptation of Elvis: Still Taking Care of Business, a biography written by one of Elvis‘ former bodyguards, Sonny West.

WILL YOU WATCH a big screen version of Elvis’ story?

    Jonathan R.Meyers already played Elvis nicely in a movie. Why another biopic?

    None of today’s so called “actors” is good enough to play Elvis, they fall short of his greatness.

    Justin Scro wrote the first drafts of this screenplay with Sonny. The folks at RFL Victor Productions are trying to cut him out unjustly, steal his work, and are failing to fulfill the terms of the original writer’s contract.
