Baz Luhrmann’s Untitled Elvis Presley Biopic Release Moves to 2022!!

Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley biopic is singing to a new tune.

Warner Bros. announced Thursday that the film will now debut in theaters on June 3, 2022, instead of Nov. 5, 2021.

The change means that the movie may get a traditional theatrical run, versus being one of the 2021 Warner Bros. titles scheduled for a day and date release in cinemas and on HBO Max.

Newcomer Austin Butler is starring in the biopic as Presley with Maggie Gyllenhaal cast as Gladys Presley, the singer’s mother. Tom Hanks stars as Col. Tom Parker, the manager who controlled every aspect of Presley‘s life.

The movie is described as focusing on Presley‘s rise to stardom, with a particular focus on the star’s relationship with Parker.

Luhrmann is producing the feature with his wife, Catherine Martin. He wrote the script with Craig Pearce, with whom he also wrote The Great Gatsby and Moulin Rouge!

Production of the untitled biopic was suspended last summer after Hankspositive test for the novel coronavirus.
