Nobody expected Francis Ford Coppola's Megalopolis to come to fruition after his previous failed attempts to get his vision off the ground, but the legendary Godfather director announced that he had returned to the project in 2019, and production got underway in Atlanta, Georgia earlier this year.

Now, the first set photos have been shared online, giving us a look at stars Adam Driver and Aubrey Plaza filming a scene in snowy surroundings.

Plot details are still pretty vague (though an early version of the script is doing the rounds at the moment), but we do know that Megalopolis will be a sci-fi drama about "a woman divided between loyalties to her father, who has a classical view of society, and her lover, who is more progressive and ready for the future."

Not a lot to go on, but Coppola did give us a slightly better idea of what to expect during a recent Directors on Directors interview with fellow filmmaker Sarah Polley. In the video, Coppola refers to Driver's character as a "wizard," which... yeah, should we take him literally? Driver is holding some kind of staff in these shots!

The all-star cast also features Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne, Shia Labeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, and Dustin Hoffman.

No official release date has been set, but Megalopolis is expected to hit theaters sometime in 2024.

Drivers face for some reason reminds me of the dangly bits of skin of a chicken leg.....

Nice to see Aubrey getting more important movie roles other than the quirky friend type, she is way too talented just for that.

Loved Aubrey in FX's LEGION cannot wait to see her in this. I can see her in a MCU film down the line as maybe: Typhoid Mary, MoonStone, or Lady Octopus

@DUNCAN1 - Agreed I can see as all those or even one of the following from DC:Silver Banshee, Livewire, or Killer Frost

@DUNCAN1 - She's gonna be in the Agatha show, so probably none of those I'm afraid.

@dragon316 - That's where your wrong there was a rumor(from no one legitimate might I add) saying there were eyeing Ana De Armas a few weeks back but that's just it.

Maybe it's just me, but Aubrey with blonde hair in those set photos looks an awful lot like Amber Heard. Like the resemblance is uncanny.

Imagine my surprise to find out it isn't based on Gail Simone's comic.

This has several very good actors(Audrey Plaza - COOL!)...and...

It has Adam Driver who is goofy looking and sucks as an "actor".

Take the ray gun. Leave the space cannoli.

Looking forward to this flick for sure.
