Megalopolis: ambitious project, extraordinary casting... Why the latest Coppola will create an event at the 2024 Cannes Film Festival

Francis Ford Coppola will create an event at the Cannes Film Festival by presenting 'Megalopolis', a Dantesque project that he has been carrying out for over 40 years.

It's a very mysterious project that promises to create the event in a few days . For more than 40 years Francis Ford Coppola has been thinking à his next film, Megalopolis. After applying the brakes to the project after the attacks of September 11, the project finally resumed in recent years. And the wait soon comes to an end ; its end, since the director of Godfather and of'Apocalypse Now will present this new feature film at the Cannes Film Festival, from May 14 to 25, 2024. The 85-year-old filmmaker is also in competition for the Palme d'or and could win the third of his career.

It must be said that Megalopolis is a particularly ambitious project.  Firstly by its long gestation, but also by its intrigue which begins with the destruction of a city of the same magnitude as New York which is seeing the birth of two diametrically opposed visions of the future. On one side' oacute;, an ambitious and visionary architect, on the other, his enemy, the mayor of the city representing the corrupt old world. And in the middle, the daughter of the policy that seeks meaning à his life.

A crazy casting and a still unclear release date

Même si Megalopolis does not win the Palme d'Or at the next Festival Cannes, the climb of the steps before the film screening will certainly be spectacular. In the casting of the film, we find huge names, like Adam Driver (Star Wars), Nathalie Emmanuel (Game of Thrones), Dustin Hoffman (The Graduate), Shia LaBeouf (Transformers), Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), Laurence Fishburne (Matrix), Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation) or Jason Schwartzman (A Board of the Darjeeling Limited). Nothing but ç a!

For now, the release date has not been announced. officially announced. According to information from Le Point, the film will be distributed by the company French release Le Pacte and a cinema release in France next September have been announced. mentioned, but nothing precise or official yet, since the film does not yet have a distributor in the United States. It must be said that, while the project is certainly ambitious, its commercial potential is still very uncertain. What is certain is that the Cannes public will appreciate it. will be revealed in the coming weeks and that the film should be released this year. 

Synopsis – A visionary architect attempts to create the cityé of the ideal future based on ecological growth, but sees his dreams opposed to this. those of the city's mayor, representing an ancient corrupt world.
