According to the press release, filming for this project has not yet started, but is set to begin in Toronto this autumn.
The upcoming flick comes after the huge success of Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Elvis’, which hit cinemas in June.
Austin Butler played the legendary music icon in the film, alongside Tom Hanks who portrayed the singer’s manager Colonel Tom Parker.
The film explores the life and music of Elvis, seen through the prism of his complicated relationship with his enigmatic manager.
The story delves into the complex dynamic between Presley and Parker spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.
Central to that journey is one of the most significant and influential people in Elvis’s life, Priscilla Presley, who was played by Olivia DeJonge.
