Austin Butler, Maggie Gyllenhaal, and More Actors Starring in Baz Luhrmann's Elvis Biopic
Baz Luhrmann’s new biopic about legendary singer Elvis Presley is coming together one key cast member at a time. While we already knew that Once Upon a Time in Hollywood‘s Austin Butler had been chosen to take on the role of a lifetime as the “King of Rock and Roll,” a few other stars have joined the cast, including Maggie Gyllenhaal as the musician’s mother Gladys Presley.
The as-yet-untitled film will focus on the relationship between a young Elvis rising to fame under the thumb of his controlling, yet successful, manager Parker. Shooting has already begun in Queensland, Australia, but in the meantime, get a closer look at how the actors compare to their real-life counterparts, ahead.
