Cailee Spaeny, Jacob Elordi on “Disabling the Mythology” –

Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi have put in the effort to accurately portray Priscilla and Elvis Presley in Sofia Coppola’s film “Priscilla.” Prior to production, Spaeny sat down with Priscilla to understand her role better and ensure an accurate portrayal. Spaeny expressed her intimidation and desire for Priscilla to recognize herself in the story. The film was shot out of order on a $13 million budget, with Spaeny using her hair, makeup, and costume as a reference for the timeline. Elordi, on the other hand, relied on extensive research to accurately depict the King of Rock and Roll. The film, which focuses on Priscilla rather than Elvis, will be released on November 3rd.
