Is MeToo coming for Elvis Presley? That's the newest fear Lisa Marie Presley is reportedly dealing with as a new movie is in development starring Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks. According to a new report by Radar Online, Lisa Marie is worried the film will depict Elvis' love for underage, teenage girls. This is well documented as Lisa Marie's own mother was 14-years-old when she met the 24-year-old rock star. For man, the age difference was scandalous but now, in light of the MeToo movement, Elvis could face an unprecedented backlash.

There's also plenty of controversy as to whether Elvis Presley wanted to marry Priscilla on May 1, 1967, or if he was forced to due her age and word getting out that he had been involved with her.  Priscilla was 21-years-old at the time of their marriage — Elvis was 31-years-old and had been romantically linked to numerous Hollywood starlets throughout the years.

Priscilla gave birth to the couple's daughter Lisa Marie Presley on Feb. 1, 1968, approximately nine months after her marriage.

The Untitled Elvis Presley Movie is slated for a 2021 release and is in the pre-production stage. Moulin Rouge director Baz Luhrmann will direct the film and Priscilla is speaking to the team, sharing her perspective.

According to the report, Lisa Marie Presley is concerned about what her mother is saying as well as how it will be portrayed. The last thing Elvis's daughter wants is for her father's name to be tarnished in the movie.

Radar Online quoted a source who spoke to A.J. Benza and reportedly sad the following.

"With today’s climate, Lisa Marie is concerned Luhrmann will exploit that relationship, and there’ll be a huge backlash against her dad. Lisa Marie has been trying to have Priscilla really consider how much private information she gives, but it’s been a one-way conversation."

    Back in the day it wasnt uncommon, I think his true fans will love him no matter what, Pricilla says herself she was a virgin till her wedding day, why cant people leave him alone and let him rest in peace, a wonderful man with a voice and handsome looks given to him by God, and such a generous person, I believe his true fans will love him always.

    I have one just one question is it not a big deal for a grown man to be sleeping with a 13 or 14 year old? Of course but people who really are morally deprived will speak against R Kelly but will defend Elvis wrong is wrong it has nothing to do with race no matter if you treated the young lady with respect or not you're still a pedophile.

    I actually think you have it wrong. It wasn’t actually Elvis that people were calling out. It was actually the media and their pick and choose of entertainers to either praise or try to destroy. I don’t think there is anything to worry about as far as Eli is Presley’s name. In 1967 14 probably wasn’t against the law. My grandmother was married at 13 and it was no big deal. Lisa has nothing to worry about.

    I don't understand why people just won't leave him alone . Back in that time it wasn't uncommon for that type of relationship, and Priscilla had supervision. I think this movie is nothing but a way to cash in on his name. I support Lisa 100%. If the want to make a movie about him, then why don't they concentrate on all the good charities he did, and the thousands of people he help without asking for anything in return but a smile.

      Well said Judy! Elvis was “ The Big Bang for Music” . I agree with John Lennon when he said , “Before Elvis, there was nothing”. The fans will forever love him and support his memory. Elvis wasn’t a perfect, sinless man but he was a one in a million Amazing man. Keep his memory alive...TCB ⚡️TLC
