Eric Bana says he won't play Elvis in 'Elvis & Nixon'

Premiere-Deadfall-NY.jpg The Hollywood Reporter reports that Eric Bana is no longer attached to the in-development "Elvis & Nixon" film. The directorial debut of "The Princess Bride" actor Cary Elwes, "Elvis & Nixon" was to star Bana, an Australian known for doing a good Elvis impersonation, as The King and Danny Huston as Nixon. Bana also had signed on to executive produce the project.

As with Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. movie projects, a fistful of Elvis projects are in various stages of development, but there's no telling when or if any of them will ultimately make it to the screens.
