BiteSize Entertainment All Shook Up For New Elvis Movie

– by Matt Granados

Conversations With the King: Journals of a Young Apprentice is a memoir written by David E. Stanley.

Stanley held a 17-year relationship with Elvis Presley, first as his stepbrother then as an aide.

BiteSize Entertainment, a brand new company launched at the 2012 Cannes Film Festival, will adapt the book into a film.

The film's tentative title: Growing Up Graceland.

Producer Gene Kirkwood:

“After meeting David Stanley, reading his book and listening to his stories, I realized there is another side to the Elvis phenomenon, a bigger story, and one that has never been told.  If Elvis was alive today, in this time of revolution in mass communication, I believe he would be one of the most inspirational individuals in the world."

Imagine if Elvis had died in the age of Twitter?

People would have kept re-tweeting the same phrase over and over again, never once believing it: "The King Dead, Found Sitting on Hotel Toilet."
