    Director Baz Luhrmann, who helmed Moulin Rouge and The Great Gatsby, is in negotiations to direct a forthcoming Elvis Presley biopic.

    Warner Bros. has reportedly scored the rights to Presley's massive catalogue of music for the film, as well. The studio has been in negotiations with the director for several weeks now.

    Further details about the original script remain closely guarded. It is not based on previous material and it is not clear which era of the King's life on which the film would focus.
