Maggie Gyllenhaal has been added to Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming “Elvis” biopic. The actress will play Elvis’s mother Gladys Presley.
The film centers on Elvis’ relationship with his manager Col. Tom Parker, with Austin Butler as Elvis and Tom Hanks as Parker.
Elvis often referred to his mom as his number one girl, and they stayed close throughout his career, although she did suffer from depression because of his time on the road.
Production on the film is expected to begin in the Spring.
