Kim Basinger Movie - Elvis Has Left the Building

Recently, there have been news articles about a forthcoming new film called "Elvis Has Left The Building", which will star Kim Basinger. This film has generated some calls and E-mails to Graceland/EPE to ask if they are involved or can provide more information. Up to this point, they know only what all fans do - what they are reading in the press. So far, the producers have not approached EPE for use of any Elvis recordings, use of any songs EPE has publishing interest in, use of any Elvis footage, or any other involvement, and no EPE trademark issues have arisen in what we know about the film so far. If any of that changes, EPE will let you know. Updated August 29: Now, the producers of "Elvis Has Left The Building" starring Kim Bassinger, have approached EPE for involvement. They have various ideas of how they might work together. EPE is now waiting and will see what comes of it as communication continues.

I think this movie seems like a great idea. It highlights how ridiculous Elvis impersonators are, it does not mock Elvis! Why would you want to boycott something that could be a great film? Perhaps the Elvis impersonators dying will be funny because they are so appalling! I say give the film a fair chance.

On a hole, I don't approve of Elvis impersonators, though there are a few exceptions. It really annoys me how the 'elvis ignorant' always latch on to the last 18 months or so of this mans life. The great talent and influence Elvis gave to the world is totally dismissed. Are these mockers super fit perfect beings? I think not. And even if they were, it does not give them the right to consistently humiliate him in this manner.

"leaving Las Vegas" - Nic Cage plays a suicidal alcoholic- it has NADA to do with Elvis; " 3000 Miles to Graceland"- Kevin Costner/ Kurt Russell play casino robbers who masquerade as E impersonators to help them pull off their heist- the movie actually pays homage to E in several ways.
any movie that helps the King reach a wider audience is OK in my book! i'm looking forward to the Basinger film...

Leaving Las Vegas is not about Elvis- get your facts straight and Nicolas Cage is a great fan of Elvis as we all know. I'm sorry, but the memory of Elvis is not sacred and a few tacky films and impersonators are not going to ruin it anyway, whatever you may think. Protesting films only give them more publicity- is that what you want? Let people have their artistic freedom and react to the myth and memory of Elvis in any way they like. Elvis is big enough to take it!

This film's possibilities are simply to mock Elvis again and again through impersonators. This film ought to be boycotted ! Haven't we had enough of impersonators?? Look at the fiasco of "Leaving Las Vegas" with Nick and Kurt. Now they want to humiliate Elvis more by making fun of him? I'm appalled that Kim Basinger is involved in this. I am wondering if she had anything to do with that monstrous Peta campaign last year making fun of Elvis' diet and the tour they made with a fat Elvis impersonator. We need to protest this film, folks--anyone have any ideas how?? We definitely need to contact Kim Basinger ! Let's get moving on this, and everyone please write the Graceland staff to get the word to Graceland that we don't want this movie made. Also contact Carol Butler at EPE who handles legal complaints, as this looks like they have not had permission yet from EPE, so maybe there is a chance to prevent it from happening !

Hey,> " Basinger will play a cosmetics peddler who, while traveling from Memphis to Las Vegas, Nev., leaves in her wake a trail of dead Elvis impersonators who die
"hilariously and accidentally," according to producer Tova Laiter." I think this movie might have some possibilities!
