Brisbane-born actor Jacob Elordi and director Sofia Coppola have taken a fresh look at the upcoming Priscilla Presley biopic.
The 25-year-old Euphoria star, who will play Elvis Presley in the film, shared a picture from the set on Instagram on Thursday.
The photo showed Jacob and his co-star Cailee Spaeny, who plays Pricilla, in a silhouette reminiscent of the 1960s era.

The highly anticipated biographical film, currently in production, will focus on Elvis and Priscilla’s life together before they became cultural icons.
Minimal details about the project have been released, making it one of the most talked about films yet to be released.
Meanwhile, some of the first images from the set emerged in November after filming began a month earlier.
Born Priscilla Ann Wagner in 1945 (changed by adoption to Beaulieu) to a US Navy pilot, the daughter of a US Navy pilot was only 14 when she caught the eye of a then 24-year-old Elvis during his military service in Germany in late 1959.

After he returned home to the US, they kept in touch via phone calls — before eventually convincing her parents to let her move to Memphis, Tennessee, full-time in 1963 to be with him.
Priscilla spent eight years in a relationship with Elvis before they wed in a ceremony in Las Vegas in 1967. The couple welcomed a daughter during their marriage – Lisa Marie, now 54.
They divorced in 1973 over the Blue Suede Shoes hitmaker’s infidelity – and Elvis tragically died of a heart attack just four years later at the age of 42.
According to Deadline, the filmmaker met with several cast members before choosing Elordi as the film’s lead
According to Deadline, the filmmaker met with several cast members before choosing Elordi as the film’s lead.
It was also reported that, however, Spaeny was always the director’s first choice for the role of Priscilla.
The film is based on the 77-year-old media personality’s original 1985 biography “Elvis And Me.”
The book became a New York Times bestseller upon its release and also sold well internationally.
The biopic was made into a TV movie three years later, with Susan Walters and Dale Midkiff portraying the writer and singer, respectively.
