Francis Ford Coppola, 84, Receives Tributes After Announcement

“One of the greatest surprises in life is when you realize that you’re elderly,” Francis Ford Coppola says in a new announcement that was recently released.

“But there is a gentle comfort coming from that, as everyone loves stories and long-ago adventures told by their Grandpa,” the author writes.  

The director of such iconic films as The Godfather series and Apocalypse Now made the remark when he joined social media for the first time, at the age of 84, to share information about his next picture Megalopolis.

The movie is the latest obsession of a director who has nothing to prove but plenty of stories left to tell, and it stars a large ensemble cast that includes Adam Driver, Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Lawrence Fisburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, Dustin Hoffman, and D.B. Sweeney, among others.

In his introduction, Coppola stated that he was joining social media for the first time because “my hope is to give you a glimpse into my life and journey in making the most interesting film of my career, @Megalopolisfilm.” Megalopolis was the director’s most recent film.  

This will hopefully answer some of the questions that have been raised regarding the picture, which is one of the most ambitious projects that Coppola has worked on during his tremendously illustrious career.

A report that there was mayhem on the set of Megalopolis was refuted earlier this year by Francis Ford Coppola and Adam Driver, who both worked on the production.

Adam Driver, one of the stars of the movie, was interviewed by Deadline and said, “I’d like to briefly respond to the article that was published by The Hollywood Reporter on Monday, January 9th.”
