Sofia Coppola’s Next Film Will Be About Priscilla Presley
Sofia Coppola’s next film will be about Priscilla Presley. As Deadline reports, Coppola will direct Priscilla, which she adapted from the 1985 bestselling memoir Elvis And Me. The book details Priscilla Beaulieu’s marriage to and eventual divorce from Elvis Presley. It was previously adapted into a television movie in 1988.
A cast is already attached: Cailee Spaeny will portray Priscilla, and Jacob Elordi will play Elvis. Shooting will start in Toronto this fall, and the film will be distributed by A24 in the US.
Earlier this year, Baz Luhrmann released a biopic about Elvis starring Austin Butler, with Olivia DeJonge playing Priscilla; its soundtrack featured a bunch of music notables. Coppola’s last film was On The Rocks in 2020, which had an original Phoenix song.
