Barry Levinson is making a movie about the making of The Godfather, and it’s already shaping up to have quite a cast. Oscar Isaac is set to play Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, while Jake Gyllenhaal will play legendary producer Rober Evans. While The Godfather is considered today to be one of the greatest movies of all time, the making of the film was not without roadblocks. There was significant push-back against Coppola directing the film, as there was against several of Coppola’s casting choices. But of course, as we know now, it all worked out in the end.
