Eric Bana to play The King in Elvis and Nixon

Eric Bana and Danny Huston will play The King and Tricky Dick respectively in Cary Elwes‘ directorial debut Elvis and Nixon. Now that is a sentence!

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Bana will executive produce the flick, which follows Elvis Presley’s visit to The White House in 1970. It was during this visit that Elvis – hilariously – requested he be made “Federal Agent-at-Large” in the Bureau of Narcotics and Dangerous Drugs.

Elwes is best known as the star of The Princess Bride and more recently as an unconvincing killer in the Saw movies.

Discuss: It’s so crazy it just might work.
