The Elvis Presley bio-pic that was one of the first victims of the pandemic will resume production in two weeks.

Director Baz Luhrmann tells Variety, “We’re back to, as Elvis liked to say, ‘taking care of business!’”

The still-untitled project hit the pause button in early March when Tom Hanks, who plays Colonel Tom Parker, tested positive, as did his wife Rita Wilson.

Now the cast, headed by Austin Butler as the King of Rock and Roll, are heading back to Australia.

Hanks and Wilson are there already, and, having just arrived from America, are in quarantine for two weeks.
