Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny are stepping into some iconic shoes as Elvis and Priscilla Presley in Sofia Coppola’s adaptation of Priscilla Presley’s 1985 memoir, “Elvis and Me.” Variety first reported the pair’s casting on Sept. 12, 2022, and confirmed the project is titled “Priscilla.”
The film, which Coppola wrote and directed, will be distributed by A24 in North America. The director, also known for “The Virgin Suicides” and “Marie Antoinette,” has previously worked with A24 on “On the Rocks” and “The Bling Ring.” Spaeny is best known for her roles in “Mare of Easttown” and “Bad Times at the El Royale,” while Elordi stars in “Euphoria” and appeared in “The Kissing Booth.”
Priscilla first met Elvis Presley in 1959 when she was 14 years old and he was serving in the army in Germany. Priscilla moved to the United States to be with him in 1963, and the pair were married from 1967 until 1973. “Elvis and Me” describes her relationship with the icon, spanning their meeting, their marriage and daughter, his infidelity, their eventual divorce, and his death.
While an official release date has not yet been announced, the poster promises the film is “coming soon.”
