In her new film, Sofia Coppola chooses to tell the story of the woman alongside the King of Rock.
A24 has streamed the first trailer of priscilla Of sofia coppola which chronicles the life of Elvis Presley’s wife.
Based on Priscilla Presley’s own 1985 memoir”elvis and me“, the biopic follows her life and relationship with the King of Rock ‘n Roll. Kelly Spaney (Murder in Easttown, 7 Strangers at the El Royale) plays Priscilla, while Jacob Elordi (Euphoria, The Kissing Booth ) is Elvis Presley.
Spenny and Elordi are the latest stars to play Priscilla and Elvis Presley on screen. Olivia DeJong and Austin Butler play him in Baz Luhrmann’s 2022 biopic/musical Elvis, which garnered two Golden Globe nominations and a win for Butler’s performance as the iconic singer. The film then earned Academy Award nominations for Best Picture, Best Actor, and more.
Priscilla marks Coppola’s third collaboration with A24, following 2020’s On the Rocks and 2013’s The Bling Ring. A serial adaptation of Edith Wharton’s “The Custom of the Country” is also in development between A24 and Coppola.
Several of Coppola’s longtime collaborators – including cinematographer Philippe Le Soud, costume designer Stacey Butt, editor Sarah Flack and production designer Tamara Deverell – worked on the project.
