In Barry Levinson’s film about the making of ‘The Godfather’, Moss will play Eleanor Coppola, Francis Ford Coppola’s wife.
Oscar Isaac plays Francis Ford Coppola, and Jake Gyllenhaal plays iconic Paramount executive Robert Evans.
Two-time Emmy and two-time Golden Globe winner, Moss most recently starred in ‘The Invisible Man’ and ‘Shirley’, critically acclaimed films.
Currently, she is in production on Season 4 of The Handmaid’s Tale, where she will also be making her directorial debut.
She yet will be seen in Wes Anderson’s ‘The French Dispatch’ and then Taika Waititi’s ‘Next Goal Wins’.
“I’ve wanted to work with her for a long time. “I couldn’t be more excited about her joining the film. Every performance of Elisabeth’s is nothing short of exceptional.”Barry Levinson, saying about his own admiration by Moss.
We still don’t have much information or a title for the film. But we hope to bring it soon more updates on the progress of the project.
