The Offer is a biographical drama miniseries about developing and producing Francis Ford Coppola’s landmark New York City gangster film The Godfather (1972) for Paramount Pictures.
Ruddy puts together the creative team required to execute the ambitious project in the show’s first three episodes. However, he faces a stern challenge as the film’s production is opposed by the Italian-American mafia led by Joe Colombo and the executives of Paramount Pictures.
At the episode’s end, Evans insults the 170 pages long script and believes it is unproducible, especially on Paramount’s shoestring budget. Therefore, it is evident that Ruddy and Coppola are losing the studio head’s support. However, in the final moments, the duo receives word that actor Marlon Brando has agreed to star in the movie as Vito Corleone, the titular character.
Brando deciding to play the lead role adds star power to the film and could help sway things in Ruddy and Coppola’s favor. It is also likely to help Ruddy and Coppola regain Evans’ support as they gear up to start filming on the ambitious project.
