Francis Ford Coppola Tribute Pour after the Godfather director, who is 84, makes an official announcement.

In a new statement, Francis Ford Coppola says, "One of the biggest surprises in life is when you find out you're old." 

"But that gives me a little bit of comfort, because everyone loves it when their Grandpa tells them stories about long-ago adventures." 

The director of classic movies like The Godfather and Apocalypse Now said this when he joined social media 

for the first time at age 84 to talk about his new movie Megalopolis. The film has a huge cast, including Adam Driver, Forest Whitaker, Nathalie Emmanuel,

Jon Voight, Lawrence Fisburne, Aubrey Plaza, Shia LaBeouf, Jason Schwartzman, Grace VanderWaal, Kathryn Hunter, Talia Shire, Dustin Hoffman, D.B. Sweeney, and Giancarlo Esposito. 

It is the latest obsession of a director who has nothing to prove but still has plenty of stories to tell.

Coppola said in his announcement that he was joining social media for the first time because 

"my hope is to give you a glimpse into my life and journey in making the most interesting film of my career, @Megalopolisfilm." 


The Yankees may have committed a $162 million blunder.
