The King lives

Film Bridge gains rights to 'Elvis' pic

Ellen Wander’s boutique international sales outfit Film Bridge Intl. has acquired worldwide rights to the drama “Elvis Is Alive, I Swear I Just Saw Him Eating a Ding-Dong Outside the Piggly-Wiggly.”

The film, directed by Robert Dias LeRoy, written by Amy Freeman, S. James Guidotti and LeRoy, and produced by Freeman, stars LeRoy as a young filmmaker who travels throughout the U.S. talking to people who believe that Elvis is still alive. Appearing in the film will be people who actually claim to have sighted Elvis, actors recreating sightings and other personalities associated with the King’s career.

Film Bridge, which Wander, a former Turner executive, launched just over three years ago, is also distributing Dan Ireland’s “The Velocity of Gary,” starring Salma Hayek and Vincent D’Onofrio; the Mario Van Peebles actioner “Standing Knockdown”; and the comedy “Splitsville,” starring Christopher Lambert.
