The film stars Austin and Tom Hanks, who plays his infamous manager Colonel Tom Parker.

There’s a lot of excitement around the Elvis Presley biopic from Australia’s Baz Luhrmann, who is hoping to recreate the buzz he generated when he brought the can-can to Cannes with Moulin Rouge! 20 years ago.

The film chronicles the life and career of Elvis from his early days as a child growing up in Mississippi to his ascent as a rock and roll icon and movie star, along with his complex relationship with his manager.

Luhrmann served as the film’s director and co-screenwriter, along with Sam Bromell, Craig Pearce and Jeremy Donner, from a story he conceived with Donner.

Elvis – who sold over 1B records – received the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2018 and he’s been inducted into multiple music halls of fame.

Elvis died, age 42, in 1977 from cardiac arrhythmia due to a toxic reaction to codeine.

Austin recently noted that he ‘lost touch’ with his own personality while playing the eponymous character.

He told GQ Magazine: ‘You can lose touch with who you actually are, and I definitely had that when I finished Elvis – not knowing who I was.’

As well as the mental impact of playing Elvis, Austin also revealed he was bedridden for a week after falling unwell one day after wrapping up the filming in March 2021.

Austin said he was diagnosed with a virus that simulates appendicitis and said it was like his body shut down straight after filming.

He said: ‘I woke up at four in the morning with excruciating pain, and I was rushed to hospital.’
