Very few people are lucky enough to get the job of their dreams. Game of Thrones was a life-changing opportunity for a lot of actors. The show launched them to heights they had never even imagined before. Oscar-winner director Francis Ford Coppola has his own dream project that he has been working on for nearly 20 years, and he has recently announced his star cast for his highly anticipated film, which includes Game of Thrones actress Nathalie Emmanuel.

Coppola is directing the independently-financed film Megalopolis from his own script. Adam Driver, Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, and Laurence Fishburne have been set for the main roles. Production begins this fall and the budget will be just under $100 million.

Coppola told Deadline in a recent interview, “What would make me really happy? It’s not winning a lot of Oscars because I already have a lot and maybe more than I deserve. And it’s not that I make a lot of money, although I think over time it will make a lot of money because anything that the people keep looking at and finding new things, that makes money.”

“So somewhere down the line, way after I’m gone, all I want is for them to discuss [Megalopolis] and, is the society we’re living in the only one available to us? How can we make it better? Education, mental health? What the movie really is proposing is that utopia is not a place. It’s how can we make everything better? Every year, come up with two, three or four ideas that make it better. I would be smiling in my grave if I thought something like that happened, because people talk about what movies really mean if you give them something.”
