Francis Ford Coppola continues to fill out the ensemble for his epic Megalopolis, with Talia Shire (The Godfather), Shia LaBeouf (Honey Boy), Jason Schwartzman (The French Dispatch), Grace Vanderwaal (Stargirl), Kathryn Hunter (The Tragedy of Macbeth) and James Remar (Once Upon a Time… In Hollywood) being its newest additions. The actors are set to star alongside previously announced cast members including Adam Driver, Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel, Jon Voight, Laurence Fishburne and Aubrey Plaza.

In Megalopolis, which is billed as a story of political ambition, genius and conflicted love, the fate of Rome haunts a modern world unable to solve its own social problems. Details as to the roles the newest additions to the cast will be playing have not been disclosed. But Coppola will direct the independently produced film from his own script, at a budget just south of $100M, with production set to kick off this fall.

Shire is repped by Sovereign Talent Group; LaBeouf by John Crosby Management and attorney Matt Saver; Schwartzman by UTA, Ocean Avenue and Sloane, Offer, Weber & Dern; Vanderwaal by WME, LBI Entertainment and Ziffren Brittenham; Hunter by Stanton Davidson Associates; and Remar by Gersh and Lighthouse Entertainment.
