New film to highlight mystery of Elvis’ faith
Four different projects are attempting to release the first Hollywood biographical movie about Elvis Presley. Only one looks at his spirituality.
Worldwide, the enigmatic Presley sold over one billion records, more than any other artist, according to the website BiographyElvis. He won multiple gold and platinum awards for 131 albums and singles — far more than any other artist. Nominated 14 times for Grammy awards, he only won three — all for Gospel recordings: the album “How Great Thou Art” in 1967, the album “He Touched Me” in 1972 and his live Memphis concert recording of the song “How Great Thou Art” in 1974.
Given the success of biographical movies about Ray Charles’ life in 2004′s Ray and Johnny Cash’s in the 2005 Walk the Line, the race is on to release an Elvis film. ”Four unauthorized Presley projects are in varying stages of development,” writes Daniel Miller in the Hollywood Reporter. “Each tackles the topic differently.”
