'Sharknado' Creators Announce Amazing-Sounding TV Movie 'Elvis Lives!'


People have been spinning conspiracy theories about Elvis Presley's death for almost 40 years. But if there are actually any interesting ideas about what he's been doing if he didn't die in '77, we've never heard 'em.

Enter Elvis Lives!, a new film TV movie by The Asylum, a.k.a. the people behind the Sharknado movies and Zoombies (premiering on Fuse on May 13!). Take it away, awesome press release:

"Plagued by a heavy drug addiction and his failing voice, The King is desperate to make things right with himself, his deceased brother, and God. His attempts to get back on track are thwarted, however, after he helps the cops bring down a powerful crime syndicate—putting his family in danger and sending him on a journey that will change his life forever."

Elvis Lives! will premiere on AXS TV, marking the network's first original film.

David Rimawi, The Asylum's president ("and conspiracy theorist," the release says), says "we intend to do for the life of Elvis Presley what Sharknado did for flying sharks." So, yeah, we're fuckin' IN.

Watch the trailer for Zoombies below, and tune in on Friday, May 13 at 10:00 p.m. ET:
