Don’t Be Cruel... let me do Elvis movie Baz Luhrmann pleads with Lisa Marie
The Elvis Presley estate, which has long refused to allow his music to be used in biopics, is considering approving a wave of movies about rock ’n’ roll’s most popular performer and Baz Luhrmann is leading the pack.
Lisa Marie may have eased such restraints in responseto pleas from Luhrmann, whose films have impressed her. The Australian director has recruited London-based scriptwriter Kelly Marcel to produce a portrait of the Mississippi-born singer in the 1960s.
Luhrmann has promised an “extravagant but truthful” retelling of these years in an as-yet uncast and untitled film for Warner Bros, due in 2016.
There has also been a surge of interest in scripts about Elvis such as The Identical, which will focus on the singer’s faith. Another is based on Presley’s biography, Last Train to Memphis, set in the city in the 1950s.
The Presley estate has been more wary of another project, Fame and Fortune, based on a loving but unflattering memoir by a former bodyguard.

Lisa Marie Presley Interview
There's an element of bravery when it comes to following in my father's footsteps. People are either gunning or pulling for you. It's extreme, one way or the other. You need tough skin, but I like performing. When you're onstage, you form a relationship with the audience. I love meeting fans after a show and hearing how a particular song has influenced their lives.
I never had a father figure. [Presley's mother, Priscilla, separated from her father, Elvis, when she was four.] I was never partial to anyone my mum dated. The closest I've had to a father figure is T-Bone Burnett, who produced my album. I could tell he cared and wanted to ensure the record fell into the right hands. You need someone to champion your cause.
I visit Graceland a couple of times a year. It's my home away from home, but when it comes to business regarding my dad's estate, I detach myself from it. I have to take off my hat as daughter to make executive decisions. It's easier now I've been doing it for so long.
Living in the UK has given me a new perspective on life. I'd had enough of the people in LA and seeing too much of one thing, so my husband [musician and producer Michael Lockwood, whom Presley married in 2006] and I decided to start from scratch somewhere new. We fell in love with England and we now live about an hour outside London. It offers a lifestyle LA couldn't provide. We grow our own potatoes! I don't mind it when the sky is dark and cloudy; I'm as happy as can be when I'm rugged up in front of the fireplace.
At 44, you start to see things from a different perspective. Before 40, I tended to look at life as black and white. Now there's a lot of grey.
My three-year-old twins, Finley and Harper, have softened me. I feel blessed every time I see them. I can't believe we had two healthy, amazing children in one shot. Michael and I look at each other every day and say, "I can't believe they're ours!"
The girls know exactly what they want. One is outgoing and the other is reserved, but they look out for each other. I cherish this time with them; I know how quickly children grow up.
My children have always come first. I planned the tour around the twins' schooling. My eldest children are very grounded [Presley had Riley, 23, and Ben, 19, when she was married to Danny Keough]. They never had a shift in their daily schedule because of what I was doing.
I'm so proud of my daughter, Riley. She's in Namibia filming Mad Max and we Skype all the time. She's there for six months. I send her care packs because this is the longest I've been away from her.
Mum is so busy, I can't keep up with her. At the moment, she's designing furniture. She has a lot of energy. She's in much better shape than I am.
Lisa Marie Presley doesn't make a habit of attending music awards show ceremonies. However, it was pleasant surprise to see her on hand at the 2012 Billboard Music Awards. Presley was on hand to present the Spotlight Award to Katy Perry.

Following her rendition of Over Me, Presley explained that her throat was drying up, blaming it on age. She claimed: 'Maybe it’s because I’m getting old.'
Her record sales haven't exactly been promising either, with her third album efforts reaching a miserly No 45 in the US chart.
