Production Weekly reports that Amber Tamblyn and Shia LaBeouf will topline the romantic love story, Elvis and Annabelle, for German director Josef Rusnak.

In Will Geiger's script, Tamblyn plays Annabelle, a beauty queen who wins the title of Miss Texas and then instantly drops dead on stage. LaBeouf plays a young Texan working at a mortuary who falls in love with Annabelle, who miraculously comes back to life on the embalming table.

Production begins late this summer.
