Sofia Coppola, daughter of the legendary Francis Ford Coppola, is already working on a film inspired by the life of Priscilla Presley, Elvis’ wife. This says the director.
The biographical films they remain an inexhaustible source of inspiration for Hollywood. This is because the lives of great personalities in history have so many incredible elements that make them worthy of being brought to the big screen. This is the case, for example, of Blonde (inspired by Marilyn Monroe) and Elvis (about Elvis Presley) that premiered this year. Now, following the life of the king of rock there will be another feature film, but it will focus on his wife, Priscilla. sophia coppola is the one who works in production.
The 51-year-old director was the third woman to be nominated for Best Director at the Oscar awards and won one for his script in Lost in translation. In addition, the developer is the daughter of the legendary Francis Ford Coppolathe brains behind the Godfather franchise.
Likewise, the creative was in charge of other projects such as the virgin suicidesThe Beguiled and The Bling Ring.
Now, embarking on this new biopic focused on the events in the life of Priscilla Presley, the developer stated that she has some challenges ahead. Exit the narrative of the recent tape of Baz Luhrman or really focusing on the woman, not the husband, would be another big test. In his interview with the vogue magazinealso compared the work he did on Marie Antoinette with Kristen Dunst to the one he hopes to do now.
“I’m excited to do something rooted in that style of American history for the first time. And Priscilla is a quintessential glamor icon,” Coppola said. “I was so interested in Priscilla’s story and her perspective on how she felt growing up as a teenager at Graceland. She was going through all the stages of youth in such an amplified world, something similar to what I was able to do with Marie Antoinette”.
For his part, Coppola considers that it is a good opportunity that his colleague has dealt with the trajectory of the king of rockas this will prepare the audience.
“I loved how Baz approached her story in a very collage-like way, but I’m glad I didn’t go into much of Priscilla’s story because now I can really dig into it,” added the filmmaker. “I think Baz is so unique and his version of that story was so creative. But Priscilla is such a minor character in that movie that I never felt like she was treading on the same territory. I love that people loved her movie about Elvis so much, and now, in a few years, there will be another movie about Priscilla. I think it will be interesting to have two completely different interpretations of the same events and time period,” he concluded.
Although his film about Priscilla Presley has not yet release date, pre-production is known to go into overdrive. The title confirmed cailee spany in the main role already Jacob Elordi like the legendary singer.
