Mick Jagger and his production company Jagged Films are in talks with 20th Century Fox to produce an Elvis Presley biopic, according to sources who spoke with FOX411’s Pop Tarts column.
There’s no confirmation from anyone involved about whether the project will go ahead, but, if so, it’s probable that the movie would concentrate on Elvis’ early years as 20th Century Fox has been developing a script based on Peter Guralnick’s 1995 biography 1995 for around a decade.
