The Elvis Presley estate, which has long refused to allow his music to be used in biopics, is considering approving a wave of movies about rock ’n’ roll’s most popular performer — and Baz Luhrmann is leading the pack.

Fans credit the thaw to the singer’s only child, Lisa Marie Presley, 46.

The estate, which wants to maintain Presley’s image as a clean-living southern boy, has until now refused to release music to filmmakers for fear they might focus on his drug use and his interest in the occult.

As a result, there have been television dramas, fictional representations and cameos in films about Presley’s peers — such as Johnny Cash — but not one big-screen film about his life.
