According to Deadline, Emmy-nominated actor Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad, The Mandalorian) has signed on to join the all-star cast of Francis Ford Coppola’s long-in-development passion project Megalopolis.
His casting comes after the film was plagued by circulating rumors about the state of its production and budget.
“I’ve never worked on a film where I was so happy with the cast,” Coppola said (via Deadline).
The dailies are great. So if we’re on schedule, and I love the actors and the look is great, I don’t know what anyone’s talking about here.”
