Tom Hanks might have his next gig lined up.

According to Variety, Hanks is in talks to portray Elvis Presley‘s manager Colonel Tom Parker in Baz Luhrmann‘s new biopic on the singer.

Parker discovered Presley in early 1955 and went on to win Presley a recording contract with the RCA Victor record label, and made him a star with his first single “Heartbreak Hotel.” He also managed Presley into his acting career.

Some films Luhrmann has previously directed are The Great Gatsby, Romeo + Juliet, Moulin Rouge!.
