Production has wrapped in Atlanta on Francis Ford Coppola’s epic Megalopolis — his first directorial outing in seven years.
The American Zoetrope production is written and directed by Coppola, and centres on an architect who wants to rebuild New York City as a utopia following a devastating disaster.
Megalopolis boasts a stellar ensemble cast including: Adam Driver, Dustin Hoffman, Jason Schwartzman, Nathalie Emmanuel, Forest Whitaker, Laurence Fishburne and Jon Voight.
The film is a passion project the Godfather trilogy creator has been planning since Apocalypse Now in 1979, and according to GQ, production almost hit floors in 2001 until the events of 11 September intervened.
On Thursday (March 30), the newly-created Instagram account for the film posted a picture announcing production wrap, with a man holding a giant clapperboard featuring a parade of kilt-clad bagpipers in the background.
Posting alongside the picture, the caption read: “That’s a wrap #MegalopolisFilm.“
Alongside Coppola, the film is also produced by Michael Bederman, whose credits include The King of Staten Island and Motherless Brooklyn. No distributor was attached to the pic at the time of writing.
