WATCH: New series to present The Godfather like you’ve never seen it before

Stephen Porzio

The show will chronicle the making of the classic.

A trailer has been released for the new biographical drama series The Offer, which will chronicle the making of classic film The Godfather.

The teaser for the show has been unveiled as the 1972 crime epic, based on Mario Puzo’s novel of the same name and directed by Francis Ford Coppola, will turn 50 years old next month.

Widely considered as one of the greatest movies ever made, The Godfather is set to get a 4k re-release in Irish cinemas from Friday, 25 February to celebrate the upcoming anniversary.

Further honoring the film will be The Offer, which will be based on The Godfather producer Albert S. Ruddy’s “extraordinary, never-revealed experiences” of making the picture.

Miles Teller will star as Ruddy, alongside Matthew Goode (Watchmen) as Paramount Studios chief Robert Evans and Dan Fogler (the Fantastic Beasts series) as Francis Ford Coppola.

Rounding out the main cast is Burn Gorman (Pacific Rim), Colin Hanks (Fargo), Giovanni Ribisi (Avatar) and Juno Temple (Ted Lasso), with Michael Tolkin (The Player) on writing duties and Dexter Fletcher (Rocketman) directing several episodes.

An Irish release date has not been set yet for The Offer, though the series premieres in the US on 28 April so you can expect it sometime after that.
