Sofia Coppola is set to write and direct Priscilla, a biopic about Priscilla Presley.

The movie, which is based on Presley's 1985 memoir "Elvis and Me," will feature Cailee Spaeny and Jacob Elordi as Priscilla and Elvis.

Shooting for the film is expected to commence in Toronto later this year.

Coppola will team up with her longtime collaborators, including cinematographer Philippe Le Sourd costume designer Stacey Battat, editor Sarah Flack and production designer Tamara Deverell, for the Priscilla biopic.

In addition to writing and directing the film, Coppola also produces the project alongside Youree Henley, Lorenzo Mieli of The Apartment, a Fremantle Company, and American Zoetrope.

Elvis and Priscilla got married at Las Vegas' Aladdin Hotel in 1967 and had one daughter, Lisa Marie Presley.
