Francis Ford Coppola's New Sci-Fi Movie Gets A Release Window Update

Acclaimed director Francis Ford Coppola discusses the present status of Megalopolis, teasing the tone of his long-gestating sci-fi passion project and revealing when spectators may expect the film to be released.  

The film, whose origins can be traced back to the director's early days in the 1980s, tells the story of two lovers caught up in a fight over the fate of New York, 

Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Forest Whittaker, Giancarlo Esposito, Jason Schwartzman, Laurence Fishburne, and Aubrey Plaza feature in Megalopolis. 

Coppola discussed the present condition of his sci-fi narrative, Megalopolis, to the Accutron podcast, detailing its release window and his experience with the film's production, according to Indiewire. 

While Coppola's comments were brief, he did affirm that Megalopolis may be released in 2024, while suggesting that the cast's performances  

would help assure that fans would never be lost throughout the film's timeframe. Coppola's comments are below: 

It'll only take a few months before it's available. All I can say is that I adore the actors. It's unique, and it's never dull. Aside than that, we'll have to wait and see. 

The release of Megalopolis will mark the end of nearly 40 years of development. In The Report, Adam Driver sits at a conference table, carrying a heavily redacted paper.

Megalopolis originated as Coppola's fantasy in the 1980s, and was funded by a number of the director's films during the twentieth century, notably his 1992 adaptation of Bram Stoker's Dracula.  

Despite his passion to the project, the picture would meet multiple hurdles, including Coppola's own uncertainty about the film's narrative's appropriateness in a post-9/11 American cultural landscape, and his time finding money for the production.
