TEARS OF A KING
Elvis was definitely "in the building" as shooting began September 1 on an Orem soundstage for an
independent motion picture about the King of Rock and Roll and his spiritual journey of discovery, including his little-known serious study of the Book of Mormon and his contacts with missionaries from The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The last hours of Elvis Presley's life at his Graceland mansion in Memphis, Tennessee are portrayed in dramatic and authentic detail in "Tears of a King", as he struggled to overcome his addictions to prescription drugs and sought for religious truths. Much of his life and career are retold in flashback sequences. Elvis is played by actor Matt Lewis, who bears a strong physical resemblance to The King, and with the help of foam prosthetics and the skills of makeup artist Tara Starling, his on-screen appearance at different stages of Elvis's life will enthrall even the most devoted of Presley's fans. He sings several songs in the movie, and visitors to the movie set found it hard to distinguish Lewis's singing voice from actual Elvis recordings.
The movie is planned for a release in 2007 timed to the 30th anniversary of Elvis's death. At the same time, a separate documentary will also be released. It will feature interviews with Alan Osmond and other friends, fans and missionaries sharing their experiences with the King of Rock and Roll.
