Last week it was announced about Michael Shannon playing Elvis Presley in "Elvis and Nixon." Shannon can do anything, he’ll be a great Elvis circa 1971. Now I’m told that the movie has a director– Liza Johnson.
Liza Johnson will take on the historic meeting between Elvis and the only president who had to resign in disgrace. I am told that another great actor, Danny Huston, may be up for the Nixon role. The project, produced by Holly Wiersma and Logan Levy, sounds ever more intriguing and promising.
