TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Sept. 13, 2007) -

Launch of Independent Film and Entertainment Studio


But its latest muse is sure to be a blockbuster, a full length feature film recounting the historic meeting between the king of rock n'roll - Elvis Presley and rock music's most formidable songwriting group, the Beatles. Appropriately titled, "The King and Queens Men: When Elvis Met the Beatles", a co-production between Jutsun Media Group and Memphis Productions LLC, the theme of the movie was 7 years in research, initially conceived by Robert Stefanow, a long-time insider within the Elvis Presley coterie.

Hired after Elvis' death by Vernon Presley, Elvis' father, Mr. Stefano was responsible for security at Graceland and became a close confidante to the Elvis clan, including Joe Esposito, Larry Gellar, George Klein and Sonny West amongst others. His close proximity to the Elvis inner circle gave him keen insight into the seminal meeting between Elvis the "King" and the "Fab Four!"

He was also entrusted with watching over a young toddler residing at Graceland, named Lisa-Marie Presley and routinely took her on outings to amusement parks and kid's playgrounds. Originally married to the sister of Jerry Lee Lewis, Mr. Stefanow was one of the original advocates in creating the Elvis Presley candlelight vigil, wherein a group of devotees lit a candle at Elvis' original home in Tupelo, Mississippi and carried that torch over 100 miles to Graceland where it was used to light thousands of candles for fans. The candle light vigil continues to this day.

The company recently attended the 30th death anniversary of Elvis Presley in Memphis and has procured key seminal footage of Elvis confidants' Larry Gellar, George Klein and Joe Esposito amongst others, all recounting the seminal night when the two giants of rock music jammed the night away. The account and events that lead up to that historic night, are the basis of the movie which will be shot in Toronto and Los Angeles. No director or actors have been signed yet and research is still underway with production slated to begin in November, 2007.

I didn't realize you could make a whole movie out of a couple of hours of a visit?
