Jacob Elordi ‘s turn to step into the role of Elvis Presley, one of the greatest music icons of all time.
Sofia Coppola’s film will tell the life of Priscilla and the love story with the King of rock and roll and will feature Kaia Gerber’s ex-partner.
The actor who in the TV series Euphoria played the character of Nate Jacobs, sharing the set with Zendaya, Sydney Sweeney and Alexa Demi, was chosen by Sofia Coppola to be the male protagonist of her new film Priscilla, which will tell the story of the life of the wife of the King of Rock starting from the first meeting with Presley, which took place in Germany when she was only 14, and then moving on to life in Graceland at the wedding with the star, up to the break between the two.
Jacob Elordi in the Sofia Coppola’s film
The film’s shooting has already begun, and in the past few hours, Elordi was photographed for the first time in the Elvis version while he was on the set next to the co-star Cailee Spaeny, who plays the character of Priscilla Presley.
The two actors were spotted in Toronto during the making of some scenes: Jacob was photographed wearing a dark blue suit, although this time it wasn’t the 25-year-old’s outfit that stood out as much as his dark hair and combed back, in perfect Elvis style; Spaeny, on the other hand, wore a pink dress paired with a very voluminous and bouffant hairstyle with a decidedly retro look.
The film with Jacob Elordi is based on the memoir written by Priscilla in 1985 and entitled Elvis & me, whose pages describe the ups and downs of the couple’s love story, who remained together for six years before the much talked about the divorce of the couple, 1967.
Coppola’s new film is highly anticipated, and the comparison with Baz Luhrmann’s film Elvis is more than inevitable, just like Butler and Jacob Elordi.
Their destinies are closely linked, not only from the point of view. Cinematic. Austin has been engaged to Kaia Gerber, Jacob Elordi ‘s historic ex-girlfriend, with Olivia Jade for some time.
The 21-year-old model and the actor dated for about a year, and on Halloween 2020, Kaia and Jacob, for a strange twist of fate, disguised themselves as Priscilla and Elvis.
