Actress Kim Basinger will play a cosmetic saleswoman whose life becomes bizarrely entangled with Elvis Presley in a new comedy.

ELVIS HAS LEFT THE BUILDING, which starts filming in the American state of New Mexico on 15 September (03), sees Basinger play a woman called HARMONY, born during an Elvis concert and linked throughout her life to the legendary singer.

During a door-to-door sales pitch of lipsticks, Basinger's character accidentally kills a coupe of Elvis impersonators and she ends up on the run from the FBI. While in hiding, she meets a depressed advertising executive and embarks on a romance with him. Together, they head to an Elvis convention in Las Vegas.
