Hollywood legend Tom Hanks will star in a new Baz Luhrmann movie about the life of Elvis Presley to be filmed on the Gold Coast.

The dual-Oscar winner will play Presley's lifelong manager Colonel Tom Parker, but who'll play The King of rock 'n' roll is yet to be revealed.

'The role of Elvis will be filled after a worldwide search to be overseen by Baz Luhrmann', Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk told parliament.

The Warner Bros. Pictures film will be shot at the Village Roadshow studios on the Gold Coast, and follows a recent meeting between the premier and Luhrmann in London.

It will explore Presley's rise to fame with a focus on his complicated relationship with his manager.

This is of course subject to the producers providing a suitable impact statement on the 'black-throated finch'. (A little joke for Australian readers).

Elvis Presley Video Tupelo's Own Elvis Presley DVD

Never before have we seen an Elvis Presley concert from the 1950's with sound. Until Now! The DVD Contains recently discovered unreleased film of Elvis performing 6 songs, including Heartbreak Hotel and Don't Be Cruel, live in Tupelo Mississippi 1956. Included we see a live performance of the elusive Long Tall Sally seen here for the first time ever. + Plus Bonus DVD Audio.

This is an excellent release no fan should be without it.

The 'parade' footage is good to see as it puts you in the right context with color and b&w footage. The interviews of Elvis' Parents are well worth hearing too. The afternoon show footage is wonderful and electrifying : Here is Elvis in his prime rocking and rolling in front of 11.000 people. Highly recommended.
