Mick Jagger In Talks to Produce Elvis Biopic

Sources revealed to FOX411's Pop Tarts column that Rolling Stones front man Mick Jagger and his production company Jagged Films are planning to collaborate with 20th Century Fox to produce a biopic of Elvis Presley.

Insiders claim the project is in a very preliminary stage.

In an interview last year, Elvis's daughter Lisa Marie stated she hadn't been pleased with representations of her legendary father to date.

"There's not been anything done properly with him yet, you know, that has satisfied me in terms of capturing everything," Lisa Marie was quoted as saying, adding: "It will happen, though."

There has been industry talk about a potential Presley biopic over the past few years, with the Hollywood Reporter calling it a race between hopefuls in November 2011. Everyone from "Idol" creator Simon Fuller to billionaire Steve Bing are said to have tried to push the project forward, but multiple obstacles involving the narrative and intellectual property have stood in the way.

Apparently it may take someone with Mick Jagger's rock-and-roll cache to make it happen.

"He was a unique artist - an original in an area of imitators," Jagger, 69, said of Elvis.
