Tom Hanks is reportedly in talks to play Colonel Tom Parker in an Elvis Presley bio-pic.
Accordin to Variety, Baz Luhrmann will direct that as-yet-untitled film. While Hanks brings A-list appeal. Luhrmann wants a newcomer to be cast as Elvis.
Once the deal is firmed, it will add Presley's infamous manager to Hanks's long list of playing historic figures, including astronaut Jim Lovell in Apollo 13, airline captain Chesley Sullenberger in Sully, Walt Disney in Saving Mr. Banks and TV icon Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which opens Thanksgiving weekend.
