The birthplace of Rock and Roll could soon play host to the world's most popular magazine issue, as Sports Illustrated may soon feature Memphis in its annual "Swimsuit Issue."
Sources told Action News 5 Tuesday that the publication was considering both Graceland and Sun Studio as possible locations for the shoot. "We certainly hope that they will join the many other publications, film projects, and television shows that shoot here," said Sharon Fox O'Guin of the Deputy Film Commission, "but it's not a done deal."
The Sports Illustrated "Swimsuit Issue," an annual tradition dating back 43 years, hits newsstands stands in February.
A spokesperson for the magazine said it was the largest selling single issue of a magazine in the world. The magazine would not confirm or deny plans to come to Memphis.
