Coppola began writing first Megalopolis In 1983, the film reportedly cost $120 million to make, financed by the sale of a significant portion of the director’s wine empire. He hosted a screening of the project in late March, attended by Universal’s Donna Langley, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos and Sony’s Tom Rothman.

However, a month later, the film is still seeking distribution, as many people who came to the screening said The Hollywood Reporter That Megalopolis Faces an uphill battle. One distributor said, “There’s no way this film can be sustained”, while another noted that “while everyone is rooting for the director”, “there’s also the business side of things”.
