New 'Elvis' film ?

Tue Apr 18, 2006 12:07 am

So what is this new film called simply 'Elvis' - oops, sorry 'The King' ?

An actor called Gael Garcia Bernal plays the Elvis role.

William Hurt is in it.

Directed by James Marsh.

I don't think it's about the real Elvis, is it ?

The film is actually called The King and is from 2005. It has nothing whatsoever to do with the Elvis.

Thanks Tom !

Don't know how I got the title wrong !

But if it's called The King and the lead character is called Elvis there must be some Elvis connection, surely ?

[Or am I being naive ?]

I haven't seen the film, but from what I've heard about it, I sincerely hope there's no connection at all.
