Russell Crowe Set For Second Roman Epic

RUSSELL CROWE, ROBERT DE NIRO, NICOLAS CAGE and PAUL NEWMAN are all set to be united in FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA's upcoming Roman epic.

The movie, MEGAPOLIS, is set to start filming early next year in New York and will have a budget of between $60-80 million (40-60 million). And Coppola's not stopping at this impressive wish list of stars, he adds,

"I also hope to get others I have worked with. " Not on the wish list is Coppola's one-time colleague WARREN BEATTY. Coppola adds, "There's not really a role for him in it. " (SVD/DV/KMW)
