An Offer We Can't Refuse

Well this is a lot of news for me to process as I sit here eating my Chipotle hard-shell chicken tacos for lunch (I do love me the crunch of a hard shell) -- the actors Jake "Jake" Gyllenhaal and Oscar "Oscar" Isaacs are going to be acting opposite one another, and somewhere besides that fantasy I have involving tear-away togas and leather straps! Somewhere real! They are going to make a movie about the making of The Godfather no less! (thx Mac) 

I should flip that photo so it lines up with the top picture and nobody gets confused but I am lazy, I'll just use my words to set your straight -- Jake will be playing the famed producer Robert Evans (on the right of the above photo) while Oscar will be playing Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola, the big bearded lug on the left. And if you had "Sexy Francis Ford Coppola" on your Future Movie Bingo Card then I guess you won because nobody else saw that one coming. Barry Levinson is set to direct the movie, which will be based on a Black List winning script called Francis and The Godfather. Now thoughts turn to...

... who they'll cast as the film's cast, of course -- somebody playing Diane Keaton? Somebody playing Pacino and Brando? Will the fates finally align and we finally get to see Tom Hardy doing Brando proper instead of just making every character he plays a Brando impersonation? If anybody wants to make their best guessing assertions in the comments I'll have it, but who knows how much of the actual "making of the movie" we'll see (even though that's the fun part) -- this might be a lot of behind-the-scenes yapping with a cameo or two from the "faces."
