The King Becomes a Super Spy in New Trailer for Agent Elvis
Published 3 weeks ago
The real-life story of Elvis Presley may have been explored by Baz Luhrmann last year, but Netflix has their own special spin on the King of Rock and Roll, and it looks like one fun ride.
Agent Elvis is set to premiere on March 17, and we have a crazy new trailer with the King working a double life as a secret agent. Check this out:
The logline reads: “He’s Elvis Presley, the King of Rock and Roll by day, and Agent Elvis, a spy vigilante saving the world, by night.”
Besides McConaughey, the series also features voices from Don Cheadle, Kaitlin Olson, Johnny Knoxville, Christina Hendricks, and a lot more.
Though it wasn’t covered in the biopic with Austin Butler, there was said to be a letter that Elvis had written then-president Richard Nixon, asking if he could be hired as a secret agent. Here’s the letter being read by Matt Berry from What We Do in the Shadows:
No doubt, the letter would have had something to do with the premise of the series, and it’s also worth noting that Presley’s ex-wife Priscilla Presley is also credited as a co-creator for Agent Elvis, while at the same time providing the voice for her own character.
The animation actually looks pretty impressive, and could even be a rung up the animation style of another popular espionage show, Archer. The show actually comes from the Vancouver-based Titmouse, the same studio that delivered Kill Team Kill for Netflix’s Love, Death + Robots.
We don’t know how much the series will actually delve into the real-life of Presley, but it would be interesting to see just how they blend fiction with reality for this show.
