I really think movies like this are so much more insightful about Elvis and the myth of Elvis than any bio-pic could ever be. Anyway, it also explores his relationship with Colonel Parker, his Svengali-like manager who controlled so much of Elvis’ career. It’s about how the Colonel cons him into doing one more movie, and then they get involved with vampires and the Colonel literally ends up selling his soul to the devil. There’s also a character who thinks he is or may actually be Sitting Bull. And there are peyote trips and all sorts of weird, supernatural things. It’s such a great script.And "hot female vampires," naturally, just in case an Oscar-nominated sidekick isn't enough nudge this closer to a green light in a skittish financing climate. Giamatti isn't worried at all, he adds: "We’ll definitely get Bubba Nosferatu made. It’s just a question of when and where." This is probably where that Manoj connection would be best utilized; that guy craps money, and God knows he owes Giamatti at least 15 million favors after Lady in the Water.
