Mick Jagger To Produce Elvis biopic?: According to insider reports, Mick Jagger is in talks to produce an upcoming Elvis Presley biopic. His production company Jagged Films is set to be teaming up with Fox for the biopic, which has been in development for a very long time.
Elvis Presley is one of the most famous figures of our time, so of course there’s been numerous attempts at making a successful biopic about him. While there have been several films featuring Elvis and even some that have made an attempt at capturing parts of his life, there has yet to be a definitive biopic on him that is considered must-see entertainment. Elvis’ daughter, Lisa Marie agrees, as she explained last year, “There’s not been anything done properly with him yet, you know, that has satisfied me in terms of capturing everything. It will happen, though.”
Although the project is said to be in very early stages, this might be the first Elvis biopic that earns the stamp of approval from his family, considering that Jagger is involved.
It’s always hard to make a biopic based on such an influential figure, especially when the rights to their life still

remain in various people’s hands, including their family’s. There’s also been a lot of competition within Hollywood itself to get this film made, and Jagger’s involvement might seal the deal for Fox.
"The Last Train to Memphis" has supposedly been in development for a long time at Fox [ten years, to be exact], and it’s said to be based on a biography of the same title that was written in 1995.
There has been industry chatter about a potential Presley biopic over the past few years, with the Hollywood Reporter calling it a race between hopefuls in November 2011. Everyone from “Idol” creator Simon Fuller to billionaire Steve Bing are said to have tried to push the project forward, but numerous roadblocks involving the narrative and intellectual property have stood in the way.
Apparently it may take someone with Mick Jagger's rock-and-roll cache to make it happen.
“He was a unique artist – an original in an area of imitators," Jagger reportedly said of Elvis.

Without you I am nothing an could never be so bold. The times we've shared, the laughter and the tears. Priceless memories, treasures all. How could I ever fail? With you I don't fear that at all. Elvis Presley!
