But, there is one movie which is supposed to be the dream project of this amazing director. The name of the movie is Megalopolis whose script was penned way back in the 1980s. Coppola really wanted to make this movie but he could not. So, it got delayed. Then came the early 2000s. We have to tell our readers that the movie is about rebuilding New York. During this time, the horrific incidents of 9/11 happened. Coppola thought that after these incidents, it would not be wise to make this movie as no one would be interested in watching the same. Therefore, it was again aborted.

Megalopolis: The dream project continues

Now, we are here, 20 years after the incident. Coppola has said that he still wants to make the movie. Several agencies have reported that Coppola wants to make this movie. And he is willing to spend his own money to make this movie.

Moreover, he is willing to take a star studded cast for this movie. Several of the cast members that we wants has also been announced. They are Oscar Isaac, Forest Whitaker, Cate Blanchett, Jon Voight, Zendaya, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange. Plus, it has also been revealed he will also be reunited with James Caan whom he casted during the Godfather.

“It is unusual; [it] will be a production on a grand scale with a large cast. It makes use of all of my years of trying films in different styles and types culminating in what I think is my own voice and aspiration. It is not within the mainstream of what is produced now, but I am intending and wishing and in fact encouraged, to begin production this year.”
