Eric Bana: Playing Elvis Presley in 'Elvis & Nixon'!

Eric Bana will play the role of Elvis Presley in the upcoming flick Elvis & Nixon, Variety reports.

The 43-year-old Aussie actor will star alongside Danny Huston, who will portray Richard Nixon in The Princess Bride star Cary Elwes‘ directorial debut. Michael Benaroya (The Wettest County in theWorld) will finance through his Benaroya Pictures production company and produce with Bobby‘s Holly Wiersma.

In 1970, Elvis requested to meet with President Nixon, and detailed in a six page letter how he wanted to become the Federal Agent-at-Large in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs. Elvis and the president eventually met, and the King brought to him as gifts, a gun and family photos.
