According to Deadline, sources confirm legendary filmmaker Sofia Coppola is to direct an upcoming biopic about the life of Priscilla Presley with the A24 Team. The film is titled “Priscilla” and will focus on Presley’s marriage to the King of Rock ‘n Roll, Elvis Presley, and her subsequent rise to prominence as a businesswoman and style icon.
Cailee Spaeny will play the starring role as Priscilla Presley, with Euphoria’s Jacob Elordi accompanying her as Elvis Presley.
This news is sure to excite fans of the Presley family and movie lovers alike. Coppola is no stranger to directing biopics, with the 2006 film “Marie Antoinette” starring Kirsten Dunst under her belt. Given her experience telling celebrity stories on the big screen, we can expect great things from this upcoming film.
Fans are already eager to see how Coppola will approach this project. Will she focus on Presley’s personal life or her professional achievements? Or perhaps emphasize the highs or lows of Presley’s storied career? Whatever direction she takes, we’re sure it will be fascinating.
Filming will begin in Toronto this autumn, using Priscilla’s memoir Elvis and Me as the blueprint. We can’t wait to see how it all plays out on the big screen.
