Will Movie Depict Sexy Elvis Or Fat Elvis?

The Wrap‘s Jeff Sneider reported that Baz Luhrmann is negotiating to direct an Elvis Presley biopic based on a script by Kelly Marcel (“Saving Mr. Banks,” “Fifty Shades of Grey”). Jared Leto would be a decent choice to play Elvis, but is he be too old to play him young? Will Marcel’s script be about the thin, 20something Elvis of the mid ’50s rather than the fat, bloated, grotesque, drug-taking, peanut-butter-and-banana sandwich-consuming, on-the-verge-of-death Elvis of the mid ’70s? I think audiences would rather see young Elvis, don’t you?
