‘The Offer’ Trailer Reveals Paramount’s Drama Series On The Making Of ‘The Godfather’

I know that nothing is sacred nowadays, but if there’s any film that’s close to it, it’s The Godfather. Ain’t nobody gonna remake that Francis Ford Coppola classic. But if you’re Paramount and you’ve got this brand that everybody recognizes as one of the greats that saw the emergence of Al Pacino, and featured incredible performances by Marlon Brando, James Caan, Diane Keaton, and more, what’s there to do with it? Well, you can make a series about the making of it.

The Offer is a miniseries coming to Paramount+ that details the turbulent journey to make The Godfather a reality. Miles Teller stars as producer Albert Ruddy (a role originally set for Armie Hammer), who famously battled studio execs, mob figures, and more in a story that itself is worthy of the big-screen. Also in the cast are Dan Fogler as Coppola, Matthew Goode as legendary Paramount head Robert Evans, Giovanni Ribisi as crime boss Joe Colombo, plus Colin Hanks, Juno Temple, and Burn Gorman.

Also aboard are The Many Saints of Newark star Michael Gandolfini, Justin Chambers as Marlon Brando, Anthony Ippolito as Al Pacino, Frank John Hughes asFrank Sinatra, and Patrick Gallo cameos as author Mario Puzo.

The Offer premieres on Paramount+ beginning April 22nd, with Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman) directing multiple episodes.
