Variety, Deadline, Hollywood Reporter and others have announced that Matthew Goode will play film producer, Robert Evans, in a limited series about the making of The Godfather.

Matthew Goode has been cast to play film producer and studio exec Robert Evans in Paramount Plus limited event series “The Offer,” about the making of “The Godfather.”

“The Offer” is based on the experience of Oscar-winning producer Albert S. Ruddy. The original 1972 film from director Francis Coppola, an adaptation of Mario Puzo’s novel, starred Marlon Brando, Al Pacino, James Caan, John Cazale, Robert Duvall, Diane Keaton and Talia Shire. Paramount Television Studios is behind the 10-episode series written and executive produced by Nikki Toscano, who is also serving as showrunner, alongside creator and writer Michael Tolkin.

Miles Teller was recently cast as Ruddy in the drama series, replacing Armie Hammer in the role in the wake of sexual abuse allegations that surfaced against Hammer. Hammer exited the production in January, as Variety reported exclusively.

Teller and Ruddy are also executive producers on “The Offer,” alongside Leslie Grief of “Hatfields & McCoys.” Dexter Fletcher, also exec producing, is slated direct the first and last blocks, according to the studio.
