Priscilla (2023, D: Sofia Coppola) S: Cailee Spaeny, Jacob Elordi

Sofia Coppola has set her sights on her next film as the Oscar-winner is set to direct the feature film Priscilla, which is based on the memoir Elvis and Me by Priscilla Beaulieu Presley with Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi set to play Priscilla and Elvis Presley. Published in 1985, Presley’s intimate account of her life with Elvis became a New York Times Bestseller and an international sensation. Coppola adapted the script as well.

Insiders say Coppola had been eyeing this film for some time as her follow-up to On The Rocks and began putting the pieces together to the film off the ground by this fall. While she met with a number of actors for the Elvis role (with Elordi ultimately landing the highly coveted role), Spaeny has been her top choice from day 1 for the role of Priscilla.

Coppola, Henley, Lorenzo Mieli of The Apartment, a Fremantle Company and American Zoetrope will produce the film and The Apartment, a Fremantle Company and Sony’s Stage 6 Films will finance the film. A24 will distribute in North America, Vision Distribution will distribute in Italy (and then become a Sky exclusive), Stage 6 Films/Sony Pictures International Releasing will distribute in the rest of the world.

Coppola will reteam with her longtime collaborators, including Director of Photography Philippe Le Sourd, Costume Designer Stacey Battat, Editor Sarah Flack and Production Designer Tamara Deverell. This marks the third collaboration between Sofia Coppola and A24 with On The Rocks and The Bling Ring. A series adaptation of Edith Wharton’s The Custom of the Country is also in development. The film will shoot in Toronto in the Fall.

Coppola a is represented by Gersh and Hirsch Wallerstein. Spaeny is represented by WME and Sugar 23 and Elordi is repped by Gersh, Nicky Gluyas Management and Goodman Genow Schenkman.

Too bad Lisa Marie doesn't act. I wonder if they ever considered Riley Keough.

I don't think Coppola is interested in stunt casting her movies.



I'm not much for the Priscilla look, but Callie Spaeny is a real goddamn beauty.

Sure, I'll check this out. Luhrmann's film barely touched on how creepy this relationship actually was.

Priscilla's book was the white-washed version of everything that went on with her and Elvis. But I'll probably give this one a watch and see what Sofia does with it.

Yet another money grab by Priscilla. Elvis has been dead for close to 46 years and she's still milking every nickel she can from the man. Of course, I haven't read this nonsense, but I bet i'm close to the mark on this one. The movie will describe Priscila as an angel from heaven while she was married to the devil himself.

Yes, Elvis had sex with so many women while they were married, it's not even funny. But don't be fooled by the pity party Priscilla will throw. She was having sex with many different men as well. Even though they were divorced in October of 1973, her grieving widow act has grown beyond tiresome.

"Cilla" has dollar signs in her eyes (as usual). She saw how hugely successful 2022's Elvis movie was, and she wants to ride the coattails in hopes of padding her bank account. This film should be a Hallmark or Lifetime movie of the week. It's sad that when her own daughter died, she immediately went for even more money by throwing a temper tantrum when she found out Lisa Marie changed her will and Priscilla wasn't over her estate.

She of all things wanted to be buried at Graceland and Lisa Marie's daughter Riley Keough gave her a firm no. They came to a settlement where Keough has to pay her a lump sum payment of $1 million dollars and another $400,000 to give Priscilla for legal fees and costs. Any good will she had with Elvis fans has gone up in flames over her actions of this year.

They could not get Olivia DeJonge from Elvis?

She was a smokeshow

That looks like fire.

Been waiting 20 years for Sofia to recapture my attention. Is this the one?

It sure wasn't for me. The lead actress was great in the role... but I didn't think the movie found a way to make the subject matter engaging, especially the way it took place over such a long period of time, dropping in seemingly at random to update us that yes, being Elvis young bride is a dull existence.

Elvis should have gotten her a monkey and a giraffe to take care of, like Dewey Cox did for his child bride.

I saw this a couple weeks ago. I didn’t like it. Elvis wasn’t quite a fully realized character (neither was Priscilla really). Because of that it felt more like an Elvis expose’.

Saw this last weekend.

It's a bit repetitive but I enjoyed Cailee Spaeney's performance in addition to Director Sophia Coppola's visual aesthetics.
