Elvis is (almost) in the building.
Warner Bros. has set a premiere date for Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley biopic. The feature will hit theaters in the fall of 2021.
The studio announced the news just three weeks after casting Austin Butler to portray The King.
The still-untitled project will “delve into [Elvis and his manager’s] complex dynamic spanning over 20 years, from Presley’s rise to fame to his unprecedented stardom, against the backdrop of the evolving cultural landscape and the loss of innocence in America,” per the studio’s official description.
The untitled film premieres October 21, 2021.
Warner Bros also pushed the Dune adaptation back one month to December 18, 2020. The film based on Frank Herbert’s 1965 novel of the same name stars Timothée Chalamet, Rebecca Ferguson, Oscar Isaac, Josh Brolin, Stellan Skarsgård, Dave Bautista, Zendaya, David Dastmalchian, Stephen Henderson, Charlotte Rampling, Jason Momoa, and Javier Bardem.
