Yes on all three counts, according Rob Diamond, director, screenwriter, and co-producer of Tears of a King, a film now in production in Utah and set to be released on the 30th anniversary of Presley's death next August.
And yes, if you can believe a story that recently appeared in the Deseret Morning News. Consider yourself warned: The complicated story involves Alan Osmond (of the Osmond Family); a Mormon missionary (Cricket Butler); Presley's father (Vernon); and Presley's karate coach and bodyguard (Ed Parker).
According to Alan Osmond, "I did give the book to the LDS Church ... . This was for safety's sake, to protect Elvis' privacy and to preserve the sacredness of this book! Several people that knew I had it were too anxious to see it and touch it. So I put it in a very safe place The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints [archives]."
Diamond, for his part, says Tears of a King will be "entertaining and enlightening for all."
