Jacob Elordi is bringing his blue suede shoes to Italy…
The 26-year-old half-Spanish Australian actor will reportedly make an appearance at this year’s Venice Film Festival despite the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes, according to Deadline.com.
The film also has an interim agreement with SAG-AFTRA, which would allow for the cast to promote the film. Priscilla Presley is also among the contingent.
Sofia Coppola is set to attend the festival alongside the following filmmakers: David Fincher, Michael Mann, Richard Linklater, Woody Allen, Yorgos Lanthimos and actor-turned-director Jack Huston. Some directors attending are WGA members but will be there “as directors.”
The landmark 80th Venice Film Festival kicks off next Wednesday and runs until September 9th. It opens with Italian WWII action film Comandante. The fest was due to open with the Zendaya starrer Challengers but that film backed out of the slot due to the strike.
