Rumours that Austin and Olivia were dating first emerged in January when they were spotted looking cosy at a Melbourne movie theatre.

Only a month prior, Austin and his ex-girlfriend, High School Musical star, Vanessa called it quits after nine months of dating.

Hunky Australian actor Luke Bracey will also join Austin and Olivia in the movie, playing Elvis’ close friend Jerry Schilling.

Tom Hanks will star as Elvis’ notorious manager, Colonel Tom Parker and Maggie Gyllenhaal will play the King’s mother, Gladys Presley.

Filming for the new biopic resumed in September, six months after it was forced to close after star Tom, 64, and his wife of 32 years, Rita Wilson, tested positive for the coronavirus.

In a statement in September, Australian director Baz, 57, said he was looking forward to finally getting back to work on the blockbuster.

‘We’re back to, as Elvis liked to say, “taking care of business!”‘ he began.

‘It is a real privilege in this unprecedented global moment that Tom Hanks has been able to return to Australia to join Austin Butler and all of our extraordinary cast and crew to commence production on “Elvis”.

‘I cannot emphasise enough how lucky we feel in the current climate that the state of Queensland, and Queenslanders in general, have been so supportive of this film.’
