Eric Bana will channel Elvis Presley in the new independent film "Elvis & Nixon." Danny Huston will star as Richard Nixon in the directorial debut of Cary Elwes ("The Princess Bride"). Bana will also be the executive producer through his Pick Up Truck Pictures banner.
Elwes also co-wrote the script with Joey Sagal and Hanala Sagal. The film will focus on the event of Dec. 21, 1970 when Presly traveled to Washington D.C. to meet President Nixon at the White House.
According to Variety, "Elwes was so fascinated by how the improbable meeting between the two historical figures came to pass that he chose the unlikely summit as the subject of his first film as a writer-director."
Thank you, thank you very much...
