stalloneSylvester Stallone is coming to television in an adaptation of Godfather author Mario Puzo‘s final novel, Omerta.

Deadline reports that The Weinstein Company backed series will follow Stallone as the “last great American don” Raymonde Aprile and his adopted nephew Astorre Viola. Chosen to succeed Aprile, Astorre comes to control the don’s banking interests in a plot line that seems fairly reminiscent of The Godfather Part III.

While Stallone has produced and appeared in a number of reality TV series, this will be his first significant recurring dramatic role.

Magnificent Seven remake director Antonie Fuqua will direct and executive produce with Stallone. The production is also currently looking for a showrunner, a lead actress and a network to take on the event series.
