Jacob Elordi is entering Elvis Presley‘s blue suede shoes.
The Euphoria star stars as the famous King of Rock ‘n’ Roll in Priscilla, the upcoming biopic from Oscar- winning director and film writer Sofia Coppola And as seen in the film’s brand-new trailer, launched onOct 3, the 26- year-old has Elvis’ deep southern drawl down pat as he gets entirely stuck on Cailee Spaeny‘s Priscilla Presley
“I happen to be very fond of your daughter,” he informs Priscilla’s daddy, played by Ari Cohen, in the teaser. “She’s much more mature of her age. You don’t have to worry about her.”
Based on Priscilla’s real-life 1985 narrative Elvis and Me, the film centers “the unseen side of a great American myth in Elvis and Priscilla’s long courtship and turbulent marriage,” according a run-through from production business A24
But for Jacob, what resonated with him the most about the movie was the chemistry Elvis and Priscilla had throughout their relationship.
