    Who is in that original cast, Oscar Isaac, Zendaya, Cate Blanchett, Michelle Pfeiffer and Jessica Lange right? Anyone else

    Probably things just didn't work out.

    So no Ingrid Goes West, Black Bear, Child's Play, Best Sellers, Emily the Criminal etc.? I would rectify that as soon as possible!

    She's our generation's Gena Rowlands (and I say that as the #1 Gena Rowlands fan )

    Unfortunately never got around to the films you listed, Black Bear especially since I like Lawrence Michael Levine stuff. Terrible thing to say but part of the delay is probably because she's been working with directors with lower priority for me (Jeff Baena etc). I should get to some of those

    Most importantly, he shot Coppola’s last 3 features; doing Youth Without Youth is what broke him into Hollywood.

    Satyajit, Sharmila, and Soumitra

    Seriously, this place is sometimes very strange.
    Thanks. This needed to be said.

    Hey, I'm excited about this movie, especially since it's such a passion project for Coppola. People can be excited, and also complain about the cast you know? Especially since the first reports had a really strong cast, so we are allowed to be disappointed with the way cast has eventually turned out, but that doesn't mean we're against the project

    The accuracy.

    The setting is supposed to be futuristic, right?

    Yeah. And isn't there supposed to be a Saturnalia element to it? That would make these looks make a bit more sense.

    Personally I think it's cool... it's the future, it doesn't have to look a certain way.

    Yeah, I don't have a problem with the look either considering it'll probably be a highly stylised future. As long as the aesthetic is consistent.
