QuoteSofia 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 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.
