This week it was announced that Elvis’s famous manager Colonel Tom Parker is to be the subject of a feature film which goes into production next year.
The screenplay is based on the brilliant book by Alanna Nash: The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Tom Parker and Elvis Presley.
This production brings together Academy Award nominee Joe Berlinger, Spencer Proffer and Steve Binder who produced and directed Elvis’ 68 TV Comeback.
The film promises a dark edge, from a young man leaving Holland under suspicious circumstances, leading onto his carnival days as the Colonel, then to a music promoter that ultimately managed the World Greatest music star.
The real story they say, has never been told! Until now.
