Sofia Coppola Compares Priscilla Presley to Marie Antoinette Ahead of ‘Priscilla’ Biopic
Coppola likened Graceland to Versailles and stated, "She was going through all the stages of young womanhood in such an enhanced atmosphere."
Yes, "Priscilla" and "Marie Antoinette" are placed 200 years apart.
Sofia Coppola, the filmmaker of the upcoming Priscilla Presley biography, cannot not but draw comparisons between the two historical figures.
In Coppola's 2006 movie "Marie Antoinette," Kirsten Dunst played the legendary monarch who ruled during the French Revolution.
Now, the "Bling Ring" director adapts Priscilla's 1985 autobiography "Elvis and Me," starring married couple Priscilla and Elvis in Cailee Spaeny ("Mare of Easttown") and Jacob Elordi.
I'm eager to do a project in that Americana vein for the first time.
Not everything can be quite as epic as it was in Priscilla’s real life, so we have to recreate it in a crafty way
Coppola cast Spaeny in the role of Priscilla, spanning 12 years across ages 15 to 27.
