Extras casting in Atlanta for “Megalopolis”

Megalopolis, the sci-fi movie from Francis Ford Coppola seems to now be in production in the Atlanta area and is in need of paid movie extras. Filming is set to begin shortly, in November and the movie will be in production into March of 2023.

The movie has been long awaited, like over a decade, and is said to be filming using some groundbreaking technology. The company, Prysm Stages in Atlanta has announced that Megapolis will be the first movie to film on one the brand new stages which they are calling LED volume stage which is located at the Trilith studios compound in Georgia. The company commented that the stage offers “a best-in-class ecosystem for physical production, including practical lighting, grip and camera, integrated into a state-of-the-art virtual production volume.” The movie is being produced by Michael Berman who stated that the high tech stage offers the best of digital and physical filming formats.

According to  The Hollywood Reporter the movie is an “epic story of political ambition, genius and conflicted love” –  set in the backdrop of the modern world, with previous summaries saying that the film will revolve around the creation of a utopia following a catastrophic disaster. So, yeah, sounds pretty sci fi..

The movie seems to have put together a Mega cast. The film is described as a passion project of Francis Ford Coppola that has gone through numerous setbacks, including the shutdowns over the pandemic. Mega will star Adam Driver (Star Wars Franchise), Forest Whitaker, Jon Voight, Nathalie Emmanuel, and Laurence Fishburne. Also announced was that the cast may include Coppola’s sister Talia Shire (The Godfather films) with her son Jason Schwartzman (Hunger Games prequel film, The Ballad of Songbirds and Snakes) along with Shia LaBeouf (Transformers) and others.
