Francis Ford Coppola Planning New Italian-American Saga

francis ford coppolaI tend to think of The Godfather as being about oranges organised crime rather than the Italian-American experience specifically, though it is arguably about both of those things. To convince me fully, I suppose you’d have to first get me to agree that there is such a thing as the Italian-American experience, singular.

But I dare say the national and ethnic background of the characters will combine with the sprawling family saga structure to win his new, as yet unnamed project, plenty of comparisons with this epic Corleone trilogy. It’s already started in fact…

According to The Hollywood Reporter, who have written a story haunted by The Godfather, Coppola’s screenplay, and ultimately film, will deal with:

a coming-of-age story that focuses on a boy and girl in their late teens [and] span from the 1930s to the 1960s.

A description which would appear to be house an inherent contradiction. I guess they end up in their late 40s.

Coppola has apparently set up offices at Paramount to work on the film though it isn’t yet known if the studio will become involved in any other way or contribute finances.

There’s bound to be a lot more about this one breaking in the coming weeks. For now, though, I’m not sure if “Coppola does family of Italian Americans” is enough to swill the taste of his more recent projects from my mouth.
