Liz Smith of The New York Post is hearing a hot rumor out of Los Angeles that Justin Timberlake will interpret Elvis Presley in a Miramax stage venture, to be titled All Shook Up.
Justin’s people say “absolutely no way” and Miramax didn’t return Liz Smith’s phone calls.
Liz writes, “Justin Timberlake has admitted to admiring the late legend, but it is unlikely he’d want to draw comparisons in an impersonation. And at this point even the most sincere Presley imitation comes off like parody. That said, I think Justin would be an excellent ’50s-era Elvis.”
