Austin Butler to star as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann's biopic




Vanessa Hudgen's boyfriend Austin Butler has been cast as Elvis Presley in Baz Luhrmann's biopic.
Butler tested for the role against Ansel Elgort, Miles Teller and Harry Styles.
The movie covers the seminal legend’s growth from dirt poor singer to global icon, seen through the prism of his complex relationship over two decades with manager Colonel Tom Parker (Tom Hanks). The film will trace Presley’s elevation to a level of stardom and celebrity matched only by The Beatles, set against an evolving cultural landscape and loss of innocence in America.
The film will shoot early next year in Queensland, Australia.
