Elvis & Nixon follows two men at the height of their powers, conscious they could not stay on top forever, both ripped with fear of the inevitable, sharing one famous private moment in the Oval office. The film recounts the morning of December 21st 1970, when the King of Rock’ n Roll (Shannon) showed up on the White House lawn to request a meeting with the most powerful man in the world, President Richard Nixon (Spacey). He had a very urgent request: to be sworn in as an undercover Federal Agent at large. This intimate moment in the Oval office between two men at the height of their powers has never been told.
Co-starring Evan Peters, Alex Pettyfer, Colin Hanks, Johnny Knoxville, Tracy Letts and singer Sky Ferreira, Elvis & Nixon is directed by Liza Johnson (Hateship Loveship) from a screenplay by Joey Sagal, Hanala Sagal and actor Cary Elwes, best known for The Princess Bride.
Elvis & Nixon is slated to hits theaters this April.
