There are some crackin' events coming to Dublin in August, but the end of summer has brought an alcohol-free initiative in The Stella Theatre that is most definitely catching our eye.

'Sip and See' is part of the Peroni Libera Series, featuring the Italian brand's first new non-alcoholic beer; Peroni Libera 0.0%.

'Libera' translates to 'free' in Italian, and it means that you can have the freedom to choose a 0% alcohol beer or opt for the regular Peroni if you're looking to let loose.

Next week's 'Sip and See' takes place in the Stella Theatre in Rathmines on Wednesday, August 7. Guest can enjoy some Italian cicchetti bites when you arrive, including bruschetta, arancini and Italian cured meats and cheese,

The event kicks off at 5.30pm on Wednesday at 207-209 Rathmines Road Lower, Dublin 6, and tickets are priced at just €20 for the over 18s 'Sip and See'.

With a stunning flavour of fresh citrusy hops, the beer will be oh so satisfying but without the hangover. To find out more, head to houseofperoni.com.

The director told Deadline, "I knew I couldn’t make this film if the casting wasn’t absolutely right, and we searched thoroughly for an actor with the ability to evoke the singular natural movement and vocal qualities of this peerless star, but also the inner vulnerability of the artist."

He continued, "Throughout the casting process, it was an honour for me to encounter such a vast array of talent. I had heard about Austin Butler from his stand-out role opposite Denzel Washington in The Iceman Cometh on Broadway, and through a journey of extensive screen testing and music and performance workshops, I knew unequivocally that I had found someone who could embody the spirit of one of the world’s most iconic musical figures.”

It’s hard to imagine what a movie about the King of Rock ‘n’ Roll made by one of Hollywood’s zaniest directors would look like!

Well, it might not be long before we find out, as Baz Luhrmann is in talks to direct an Elvis Presley biopic.

The Romeo and Juliet movie-maker has been in negotiations with Warner Bros about depicting the life of the iconic singer on the silver screen.

The studio has also secured full rights to the Love Me Tender singers’ entire back catalogue for the movie. And that’s not all – Fifty Shades of Grey writer Kelly Marcel is working on an original screenplay for the film.

It’s yet to be revealed what period of Elvis’ life the movie will depict before his death in 1977 aged 42.

Baz has a number of projects in the pipeline, including the highly-anticipated Kung Fu movie, but the director hasn’t revealed what he’ll start work on first.
