Known internationally for his electrifying Elvis concert experiences, Steve Davis, will announce his starring role in the feature film ELVIS THE APOSTLE at the annual “Memories of Elvis” birthday bash Jan. 12, 2013 at The Pageant.
Presley would have turned 78 on Tuesday.
Those attending the event will also get a sneak peek at the investor trailer for the film and a chance to purchase film-related merchandise.
According to a press release, Davis will portray Rick Barton, a hardworking mechanic and Harley-rider beset by the despairs of mid-life. After suffering a brain injury, his character finds recovery and redemption by becoming a gospel-singing, street-preaching Elvis.
Co-director and writer Pete Nicolazzi chose Davis for the role because "Steve brings a level of energy and magic to lift the spirits of individuals, just as Elvis himself did. He's not just an Elvis impersonator, he’s an Elvis illusionist."
Currently in development, Hollywood and St. Louis film professionals plan to bring this faith-based family film to St. Louis in 2013.
The film's fundraising campaign on the popular crowd sourcing site Indiegogo will also commence on the day of the concert. Donors will receive film related gifts and inclusion in the film’s credits for their contributions by visiting their Indiegogo page after Jan. 12. Keep an eye on their website for details.
