Washington: Evan Peters has been signed to star in the historical drama flick ' Elvis And Nixon.'
The indie project, which already stars Kevin Spacey as President Nixon opposite Michael Shannon as Elvis Presley , was penned by actor Cary Elwes with Hanala and Joey Sagal, and would be helmed by Liza Johnson, Deadline.com reported.
The story centers on a peculiar 1970 meeting between Presley and the president that famously yielded one of the more curious White House photo ops in pop culture history, when Elvis wanted to become a federal agent to support Nixon's drug policy.
The 27-year-old actor, who played Quicksilver in Fox's ' X-Men' franchise and known for his work in 'American Horror Story,' would play the part of Dwight Chapin, the White House aide who helped organize the meeting between the two men, post Elvis' arrival on the White House lawn and asking to meet directly to the President.
The movie is being produced by Cassian Elwes with Holly Wiersma.
