The Australian actress has been set to star as Priscilla Presley in Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming Elvis Presley biopic. 

The still untitled feature from Warner Bros. has added Olivia DeJonge to its cast. She joins previously announced Austin Butler as the King and Tom Hanks as his manager Tom Parker. 

“Olivia is capable of manifesting the complex depth and presence that has made Priscilla Presley an icon in her own right,” Luhrmann said. “She’s an extremely talented young actor and the perfect counterpoint to Austin’s Elvis.”

Luhrmann will direct from a script he co-wrote with Craig Pearce. 

The film is set to hit theaters on October 1, 2021.
