Yep, resurrecting dead celebrities in the form of hologram is officially a thing now. Tupac kicked off the trend at Coachella, and a hologram for Marilyn Monroe is also in the works. Now the company that brought you Tupac is hoping to bring you Elvis Presley.

The makers of the Tupac hologram Digital Domain Media Group have partnered with Core Media Group to resurrect the "King of Rock 'n' Roll," according to Mashable. No dates or places for the King's return have been announced.

Mashable points out that the King has been resurrected this way at least once before with Celine Dion on American Idol. It's pretty eerie, but if we're going with it why shouldn't the two of them perform again together in Vegas?

We're taking bets on who is next: Is it too soon for a moonwalking Michael Jackson or anyone else on this Coachella line-up?
