Filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola has put on a star-studded cast of Adam Driver, Nathalie Emmanuel, Forest Whitaker, Laurence Fishburne and Jon Voight for his latest feature film “Megapolis”.

The director, known for classics such as the “Godfather” trilogy, “Apocalypse Now” and “The Conversation”, will write and direct the project, which has been in progress for the past 20 years.

The log line for the film reads: “Rome’s fate haunts a modern world that can not solve its own social problems in this epic tale of political ambition, genius and conflict-filled love.” Coppola independently produces the film, which is budgeted at just under $ 100 million.

The veteran filmmaker’s last directing effort was the 2011 horror film “Twixt”, with Val Kilmer, Bruce Dern and Elle Fanning in the lead roles.
