LOS ANGELES: Oscar-winner Leonardo DiCaprio will star in the upcoming biopic of Elvis Presley's producer Sam Phillips and it will be co-produced by musician Mick Jagger.
DiCaprio will also produce the still-untitled biopic about Sun Records founder Phillips, the rock pioneer who produced landmark records by Presley, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkins and many more, reported Deadline.
The Paramount Pictures film is based on the Peter Guralnick's book "Sam Phillips: The Man Who Invented Rock 'N' Roll".
Jagger will hold a similar role in helping to foster the Phillips story to the silver screen as the Rolling Stones singer played on the HBO music drama "Vinyl".
Phillips founded the Memphis-based Sun Records in 1952, setting up the famed Sun Studio, where Presley laid down his earliest recordings, including first single "That's All Right," considered one of the earliest rock n' roll releases.
In addition to his string of hits on the Sun label, Phillips also oversaw the legendary and impromptu Million Dollar Quartet session in December 1956, when Presley, Cash, Perkins and Jerry Lee Lewis performed together. Phillips, who also championed for integration in the 1950s, died in 2003.
