ytsfreeSeptember 12, 2022

It seems like almost three full months ago, moviegoers were heading to their local theater to see Elvis, the latest of Baz Luhrmann’s movies. Oh wait, it was actually that long ago. Well, following Elvis collecting over $283 million worldwide and becoming available for HBO Max subscribers to stream, it’s been announced that another movie about the King of Rock has been cast. Better yet, we know who will be playing Elvis Presley this time around.

A24 is teaming with director Sofia Coppola on Priscilla, which is based on the 1985 memoir Elvis and Me by Priscilla Presley, who was married to the singer from 1967 to 1973 and Sandra Harmon. Jacob Elordi, best known for Netflix’s Kissing Booth movies and his role on HBO’s Euphoria, will play Elvis Presley, while Cailee Spaeny, who recently plated Anna Roosevelt Halstead in the Showtime series The First Lady, has been tapped to play Priscilla Presley, who was originally known as Priscilla Beaulieu. In addition to her helming duties, Coppola also worked on Priscilla’s script.
