The film reportedly boasts a staggering budget of USD 120 million, a significant portion of which was financed through the sale of assets from Coppola’s esteemed wine empire, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Despite garnering interest from industry giants like Universal’s Donna Langley, Netflix’s Ted Sarandos, and Sony’s Tom Rothman, Megalopolis is still in search of a distribution deal. The film faced scrutiny during a recent screening for potential buyers, with some expressing scepticism about its commercial viability.
