Eric Bana Playing Elvis For Cary Elwes

They might not have much in common, but Elvis didn’t die until 1977, so his public life intersected with Nixon’s and in a movie directed by Cary Elwes, we’ll see exactly how that happened.

According to Variety, Erica Bana will be playing Elvis, while Danny Huston will play Nixon, in the appropriately titled indie Elvis & Nixon.

The script is penned by Elwes and Joey Sagal and Hanala Sagal based on a real-life event, when Elvis visited the White House in 1970 to suggest himself as a “Federal Agent-at-Large” in the war on drugs.Bringing gifts such as a Colt 45 pistol…he is Elvis afterall!

Bana is much older than Elvis, almost 10 years older. It’s a challange for Bana; he will habe to really go out there to play the King.
