We’ve been talking about Megalopolis for years, the giant Francis Ford Coppola’s self-financed film that will cost nearly $100 million. A more than important project for him, since the first draft was written in 1984, test sequences were shot in 2000, and since his last feature, Twixt (in 2011!), the director has garnered money to finance his project. If we’ve been talking about it for so long, it’s because the project is taking a long time to materialize. Last year, he explained that he wanted to shoot in the fall of 2022, but the casting was still not concrete. Over the years, we will have heard of Claire Danes, Edie Falco, James Gandolfini, Kevin Spacey, Meryl Streep, Nicolas Cage, Parker Posey, Paul Newman, Robert De Niro, Russell Crowe, Warren Beatty, Oscar Isaac, Cate Blanchett, Jon Voight, Zendaya, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange. To say. But that’s it: The Hollywood Reporter tells us that the casting has been (finally) finalized, with a certain Adam Driver at the head of the gondola. The latter, whom we have seen twice in recent months at Ridley Scott, will be accompanied by Forest Whitaker (who was on the list of presumed names a few months ago), Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight and Laurence Fishburne. Hoping that Coppola will be able to shoot this political thriller that makes us salivate in advance next fall.
