Oscar Isaac and Jake Gyllenhaal to Star in Barry Levinson’s ‘Francis And The Godfather’

As reported by Deadline, Oscar Isaac and Jake Gyllenhaal have been cast in director Barry Levinson’s Francis And The Godfather, an upcoming drama that will detail the “legendary and wild battles” that led up to the creation of the renowned 1972 film The Godfather. The film initially comes from a Black List script written by Andrew Farotte, which Levinson later reworked.

Isaac will portray Francis Coppola, the director of The Godfather and co-writer of the film’s screenplay, who was 31 at the time. Gyllenhaal, meanwhile, will play the part of Paramount executive Robert Evans.

The real life Coppola himself supports the project, as he told Deadline, “Any movie that Barry Levinson makes about anything, will be interesting and worthwhile!” He’s currently working on his director’s cut of The Godfather Part III.
