Francis Ford Coppola is wrapping the final cast list of his forthcoming big-budget supreme feature “Megalopolis” with his sister Talia Shire, Shia LaBeouf, and his nephew Jason Schwartzmann.
“Megalopolis is the saga of an architect who dreams of building the city of the future, hoping to enable people to live in an utopia where people only do the work they love to do” Thus, Utopia is something people have long sought. The Megalopolis is going to depict the story of a political ambition, intellectual and ambivalent love, the destiny of Rome persecuting a new world incapable of unraveling its own colonial problems. Coppola will direct the unassisted produced film from his own script, at a budget just south of $100 million, with production set to kick off this fall.
The casting for the roles keeps on increasing and for the director Francis Ford Coppola’s upcoming project Megalopolis cast list grows steadily bigger as various well-known actors have lately entered the film, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
