Elvis Presley Biopic from Director Baz Luhrmann Delayed Until 2022

Just In: Elvis Presley biopic by director Baz Luhrmann delayed until 2022. 

Warner Bros just announced that Baz Luhrmann's much-anticipated biopic on Elvis Presley has been delayed till 2022. It was originally set with star casts like Austin Butler as the King of Rock and Roll, and Tom Hanks, as Elvis Presley's manager Colonel Tom Parker.

The still-untitled movie was set to release in the theatres on November 05, 2021, as per Warner Bros, but now it's delayed till June 03, 2022.

Apparently, the Oscar-nominated director had still another five weeks to shoot and the movie would not have finished on time to release by the end of the year as promised. 

The production of the film began in early March 2020, and it probably would have been completed if the team didn't face complications due to coronavirus. Casts like Tom Hanks along with his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for the virus after arriving in Australia which became a major setback. 

The movie is written by Luhrmann and Craig Pearce that is set to cover like 20 years of Elvis's career and his relationship with Parker following his rise to fame and the unprecedented stardom of his.

Elvis Presley's biopic isn't the only high-end movie set to release by the Warner Bros as they have plenty of others lined up like Space Jam: A New Legacy, Dune, Godzilla vs. Kong, Mortal Kombat, The Suicide Squad, In the Heights, Judas, and the Black Messiah, Tom & Jerry: The Movie, and The Matrix 4
