The film Priscilla, directed by Sofia Coppola, will have its world premiere in Venice 2023 and Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny could also participate in the event.
The protagonists of Priscillathe new film directed by Sofia Coppola, could be present at Venezia 2023 after SAG-AFTRA gave the actors the chance to promote the project during the strike.
Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny could therefore arrive in Italy to participate in the world premiere of the film, which will then be distributed in some countries thanks to MUBI.
The official green light
Priscilla got approval for the actors to be involved in the promotion due to the fact that it was produced in Canada, following the rules stipulated by the local union.
The film produced by A24 should be presented at the Venice Film Festival by Sofia Coppola, director of the project, and by Priscilla Presley.
To find out if the green light from SAG-AFTRA will have convinced the cast members to attend the premiere and press activities, however, we will have to wait.
Among the performers, in addition to the two protagonists Jacob Elordi and Cailee Spaeny, there are also Raine Monroe Boland, Emily Mitchell, Dagmara Domińczyk, Jorja Cadence, Rodrigo Fernandez-Stoll, and Luke Humphrey.
