Coppola wants to continue working on Megalopolis, a film produced for 40 years

New, starring Adam Driver (Star Wars), was shown during the 77th edition of the Cannes Film Festival, which runs until May 25

New film by Francis Ford Coppola (The Godfather) and one of the most anticipated by moviegoers around the world, Megalopolis premiered last Thursday (16) in the 77th edition of Cannes Festival. However, according to the filmmaker, when the film hits theaters, the edition could be very different from what was presented at the French event.

“The reason I often re-edit my films is quite simple: I own them. And most of the time, I own them because no one else wants to! When you own a movie, it’s a lot easier to access it and tinker with it a little bit, because over time you think, ‘Oh, I understand this a little better now.’”explained in a press conference at the festival [via Omelete].

“So, let me tell you: I will probably continue here for another 20 years, being optimistic. If, in these 20 years, I find a way to do Megalopolis be a little better, I don’t see why not try.”he added.

Four decades of Megalopolis

Written and directed by Coppola, Megalopolis It took forty years to finally reach cinemas. The idea for the film – which tells the story of an architect, played by Adam Driver (Star Wars), with the desire to rebuild New York City in a utopian way after a disaster – emerged in the 1980s.

However, at the time, Coppolla was unable to obtain financing to produce the film at the time. So that he could get it off the ground, the filmmaker even sold some of his properties and finally got around $100 million to make it.
