Elvis Presley Biography to Be Adapted

Peter Guralnick‘s 1994 biography, Last Train to Memphis: The Rise of Elvis Presley, will be adapted into a biopic. Screenwriter John Fusco will write the script.

According to Deadline, this project has been in the works for over a decade. Here’s more from the article: “Steve Bing is producing the film now for Fox 2000. The book covers the formative years of Presley up to his enlistment in the Army.”

In addition to biographies, Guralnick has published short story collections, novels, and music criticism. The Last Train to Memphis (1994) is the first book in a two-volume biography set; it was followed by Careless Love: The Unmaking of Elvis Presley (1999).
