Francis Ford Coppola’s iconic movie, The Godfather, has stood the test of time as a beloved classic since its debut in 1972. While audiences have always praised the film, the behind-the-scenes story of its creation has remained relatively unknown. That is until now, with Paramount’s new docu-drama, The Offer.

The Offer, set to stream on Paramount+ starting April 28, offers a dramatized account of the challenges faced during the making of The Godfather, with a focus on the film’s director, Al Ruddy, portrayed by Miles Teller. The series delves into lesser-known obstacles encountered during the production of The Godfather, such as resistance from the studio due to a perceived lack of interest in gangster films and real-life threats from mafia groups. Teller describes The Offer as a Shakespearean drama showcasing the American Dream and the significance of family, themes that align with those explored in The Godfather.

The Offer faced delays and challenges, including a setback in 2020 when Armie Hammer, originally cast as Ruddy, withdrew from the production following allegations of inappropriate behavior. Production was also briefly paused in September due to Teller testing positive for COVID-19, though he has since recovered.
