Francis Ford Coppola Denies Reports of Chaos on Megalopolis Production

It seemed like Francis Ford Coppola’s self-financed passion project Megalopolis was in major peril yesterday following a report that the production had descended into "chaos." Things looked grim with the loss of a number of key creatives aboard the film as well as the resignation of the art department and the jettison of the VFX team. One person that’s not worried about the film, however, is Coppola himself. Deadline recently published a response from the legendary director in which he vehemently disputed the notion that Megalopolis had fallen into disarray.

"I love my cast, I love what I’m getting each day, I am on schedule and on budget, and that’s what is important to me," Coppola told Deadline from the set of the film. In the article, he addressed the many recent developments that led to the belief that the film had gone off the rails. Namely, he explained the loss of the VFX and art departments. While he admitted that there was significant turnover, he clarified that it was merely a result of some restructuring and cost-cutting and not the derailing disaster it was believed to be. Coppola was initially incorporating experimental virtual production technology, though as costs rose precipitously, he found it more efficient to handle most of the effects in post-production. The VFX team was cut to keep things on budget. The art department left over creative differences over personnel, something understandable given Coppola’s tendency to make constant creative shakeups.
