Colonel Tom Parker Movie Planned

The story of ELVIS PRESLEY's manager and mentor COLONEL TOM PARKER is heading for the big screen.
Hollywood producers David Permut and Steve Binder have bought the movie rights to Alanna Nash's 2003 novel The Colonel: The Extraordinary Story of Colonel Parker and Elvis Presley.
The book follows Parker's showbiz career; first as a carnival hustler and in later years when he discovered Elvis and helped transform him into the King of Rock and Roll.
It also explores the secret early life of the man - born in the Netherlands as Andreas Cornelis van Kuijk - and his link to the murder of a female acquaintance shortly before he left for a new life in the U.S.
Binder has a long association with the Blue Suede Shoes hitmaker, who died in 1977 - he produced the legendary Elvis Presley Comeback Special in 1968.
