Francis Ford Coppola Might Spend $100 Million OF HIS OWN MONEY To Make “Megalopolis”



The master film director behind “The Godfather,” “Apocalypse Now,” and “Bram Stoker’s Dracula” has a reputation for sinking his own money into his projects, sometimes with lucrative results and other times with near-bankruptcy. Now, in a recent Deadline interview, Francis Ford Coppola spoke about a long-gestating project that he’s willing to invest $100 million of his own money in if necessary. And with a net worth of $400 million, Francis could indeed foot the bill.

Sounds great, but it’s also not the kind of movie that media companies are rushing to spend $100-$120 million on these days. Which is why Coppola says that he’s once again willing to put up his own money to make sure the movie gets made — even if he has to put up the entire sum himself:

“I have some private financiers who want to come in on a partner basis, and I’m willing to match their funds, if I have to…Obviously the more money I have to put up, the more complications it gives me, but I am capable of doing it. I am capable of going the whole distance if I really had to. It would be hard for me or anyone to put up $100 million to make a utopian dream of a film, but it is not impossible for that to happen. It has been in the news I just sold one of my wineries to another company. So I’m a position where I don’t have the money but I can borrow it. So basically I am the same position as I was in that Dream Studio period, where I want to see the dream come true and I am not afraid to risk my own money to make it happen.”
