Baz Luhrmann Has Four Frontrunners for Elvis Role in New Film

There are four actors who are in the running to play Elvis Presley in an upcoming film about the legendary entertainer, to be directed by Baz Luhrmann.

The Moulin Rouge and Great Gatsby director is working on a biopic about the singer and actor, but not much is known about the project. The film is not based on any source material and Luhrmann wrote a new script with his writing partner Craig Pearce.

Ansel Elgort, Harry Styles, Austin Butler, and Miles Teller are said to be the four stars who are frontrunners to land the role, according to Deadline. TheWrap also reports that Aaron Taylor-Johnson is in contention.

Tom Hanks is in talks to play Elvis’ manager Colonel Tom Parker.
