“Elvis Came Back to Manage Me” is a screenplay written by Jay Schorr. What makes this movie different than other political thrillers is that voters are being asked to lobby Hollywood producers to green light the project. “Usually the producers in Hollywood decide which films get made,” said Bill Singletary, a South Florida media executive. “This is the first time someone’s trying to vest that decision with the movie-going public.” Singletary says there’s no better way to test market a potential movie concept than to put it out there before the public. “They buy the tickets and know what they want to see.”
“Elvis Came Back to Manage Me” is based on the story of Charlie Blake, a struggling South Florida country musician. One night, while performing at a Fort Lauderdale Moose Lodge, Blake sees an apparition of Elvis Presley. Elvis tells Charlie he's come back to manage him and propel him to stardom. In exchange, Elvis asks that Charlie assist him in his quest to track down those responsible for the King’s premature demise. But Elvis’ interest in Charlie goes far beyond any conspiratorial unraveling. It is soon revealed that Charlie is the King’s illegitimate son. What follows is nothing short of a cosmic series of events with profound repercussions for father, son and the fabric of American society.
“The movie is destined to become a cult classic,” said Schorr. Schorr said the public will be able to read his script online, then if they like it, click on a thumbs-up link to major movie studio executives. The public also will get to participate in casting the movie. “We’ve already begun to explore talent attachments,” Schorr said. “People will be able to vote on who they want to star in the movie. We’ve already put out feelers to Ben Stiller, Eddie Murphy and John Travolta.” The title track, Elvis Came Back to Manage Me, will be performed by a major country music star.
