Megalopolis, sci-fi movie from Francis Ford Coppola casting call.

Coppola’s new project, Megalopolis, which is described as his dream project which has been decades in the making is finally beginning production in Georgia.  Background casting directors for the film are now holding a casting call for Atlanta area locals that would like to work as paid background actors on set of a Francis Ford Coppola Film (The Godfather series).

Megalopolis, is set to begin filming next month and will continue production in Atlanta, Georgia through March of 2023. Star Wars actor Adam Driver stars in Megalopolis along with an all star Mega cast which includes Forest Whitaker, Laurence Fishburne, Jon Voight, Nathalie Emmanuel, Shia LaBeouf, Aubrey Plaza, Dustin Hoffman and Talia Shire.

The projects description and logline is what one would call vague.. “The fate of Rome haunts a modern world unable to solve its own social problems in this epic story of political ambition, genius and conflicted love.” However, now that production on the long awaited movie has begun, more details will hopefully begin to come out.

The set they are filming on is described as groundbreaking and a marriage of physical and digital worlds.  The set is located at Prysm Stages at Trilith Studios in Georgia. According to Indie Wire, Coppolla is spending millions… as in 120 million approximately, of his own dollars on the movie and he aims to have “one foot in the past and one in the future,” combining forms of classic filmmaking with the newest production technology. The Prysm Stage is built to accommodate a best-in-class ecosystem for physical production, including practical lighting, grip and camera, integrated into a state-of-the-art virtual production volume. Along with the new technology available to him at Trilith, Coppola plans to use new, never-before-seen techniques to create “Megalopolis.”
