Luke Bracey Joins Cast of Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Elvis’

Hanks and his wife were former Queensland coronavirus patients and treated at a special ward at Gold Coast University Hospital, before getting the clearance to fly back to the United States of America after being declared COVID-free.

The Courier Mail reports the film's production company has rented out several floors of the resort to operate its own quarantine operations.

Elvis, a biopic co-written and directed by Luhrmann, was in advanced pre-production in March when co-star Tom Hanks was diagnosed with COVID-19, halting production.

You may remember back in March, Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, both tested positive for coronavirus at the precipice of the world turning completely upside down.

The actor was papped getting off a private jet (donning a face mask, of course) at Coolangatta Airport in Queensland on Tuesday evening.

Hollywood heavyweight Tom Hanks was allowed to bypass Queensland's hotel quarantine after touching down on Australian soil this week.

"Under that plan, they have to stay in the place for two weeks, just like everybody else", she added.

During the course of the flight, some mediapersons kept leaving their seats to get close to where Kangana was seated and speak to her.

"They will have random checks, as is my understanding, by police". Tom and Rita managed it all so perfectly, and we were being so fortuitous we experienced this immediate relationship with the head of infectious health conditions (Dr. Wattiaux, a Gold Coast community health and fitness medical professional), because it was an quick shutdown.

"There are a number of people who have come under that category I've given an exemption to because they have third party arrangements in place, that I'm confident they meet all the requirements that we have in place for hotel quarantine".

It was expected that Hanks would undergo mandatory hotel quarantine like all new arrivals.

"The Queensland Screen Sector COVID Safe Work Plan, developed by Screen Queensland with the Government, ensures that all productions operate in a COVID safe environment, so that the highly skilled Queensland film workforce can get on with the job".

State LNP MP Ros Bates argued that the Queensland government had established a double standard.

Bracey, who has previously enjoyed movie roles in Point Break and Hacksaw Ridge, is the latest addition to the upcoming biopic's cast that includes Tom Hanks as Presley's manager Colonel Tom Parker, Maggie Gyllenhaal as the musician's mother, Gladys Presley, and Rufus Sewell as his father, Vernon Presley.
