The Offer (Paramount +) -- S: Miles Teller, Matthew Goode -- Limited series on Making of The Godfather




THE OFFER is based on Oscar®-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy’s extraordinary, never-revealed experiences of making “The Godfather.” The series stars Miles Teller as Albert S. Ruddy, Matthew Goode as Robert Evans, Juno Temple as Bettye McCartt, Giovanni Ribisi as Joe Colombo, Dan Fogler as Francis Ford Coppola, Burn Gorman as Charles Bluhdorn and Colin Hanks as Barry Lapidus.




This is a 10 episode scripted series on the making of The Godfather. Premieres April 28th

Still can't believe there are currently two making-of Godfather projects being filmed simultaneously. That's insane.

The production of this one sounded like a nightmare.

That other production probably movie doesn’t look like much yet.

Not interested at all in this. I’d prefer seeing a series like this on the making of The Cotton Club.

I just started this and it's in 4k DV / 5.1 via the dedicated P+ app. Just had to come in and say that Matthew Goode is killing it as Robert Evans. He's got the raspy inflection down pat!

Been waiting for this, and it didn’t disappoint. Looking forward to the rest.

Reviews haven't been great so far. I wasn't sure I wanted to invest 10 hours in this, but if you guys like it, I guess I'll check it out.

I would be so in if this was a movie.

Sucks all the great or good movies we lost that were filmed as TV shows instead.

A movie version of this doesn’t guarantee that it would be good.

but it would be less of a time commitment.

There is probably a lot of filler with this being close to a 10 hr show.

Matthew is so dead-on perfect that I wish some of the other well-known players (Frank Sinatra for example) could measure up. I'm really enjoying this.

I hope Paramount has a free trial and I can watch this when all the episodes are posted.

First episode sucked me in. How did Ruddy get this assignment though with just one turkey under his belt? Other producers were afraid of a gangster flick after three straight bombed?

Matthew Goode and Miles Teller (usually not a fan but he's aged out of his boyishness and feels like a commanding lead) are really nailing it but some of the others are weak by comparison.

I believe it's a 1-week trial.

Caught up to the current 5 episode and really enjoying it. If only half of it is true, it's still insane.

Miles is great in this and usually I am indifferent to him.

Yeah it's pretty wild. Had no idea Ruddy was so instrumental; like the amount of lengths he went to is incredible. Also if Coppola wasn't director no Pacino and probably no Brando and the entire thing could've easily been a disaster.

Hope this starts a trend of behind the scenes shows of famous movies.
