Francis Ford Coppola upset over Godfather video game

http://www.imdb.com/news/sb/2005-04-08/

Francis Ford Coppola is up in arms over Paramount's decision to produce (with videogame makers Electronic Arts) a videogame based on his The Godfather movies. In a taped interview due to air on AMC's Sunday Morning ShootOut this Sunday, Coppola said that the studio had never mentioned its plans to release a Godfather videogame. "I knew nothing about it. They never asked me if I thought it was a good idea," Coppola said. Calling Coppola's movie, "one of history's most revered masterpieces," Electronic Arts says on it website that the game, due to be released in the fall, "serves as inspiration for the game as gamers will join the Corleone family and earn respect through loyalty and fear." Coppola says that he was able to get a preview of the game. "They use the characters everyone knows ... and then for the next hour they shoot and kill each other. I had absolutely nothing to do with the game and I disapprove."

I dissapprove of him using his hack daughter in a key role in the third movie, thereby all but ruining it.

Like me, he can get over it.

Yeah that's what I was thinking.

The Godfather is a cinematic masterpiece IMO. I can't see how a video game can come close to being as good as the film was. Leave it alone.

It's not like a video game is going to tarnish the film in any way. Are they forcing Coppola to play it?

Of course, if Coppola didn't want a video game being made, perhaps he should have had the foresight to secure the rights to his films like other directors.

That hack daughter is still annoying people by directing bad movies since acting didn't work out.

Funny how she materialized with a few mill to produce her movies. Yeah , her last name had nothing to do with it.

Did you know Nick Cage is Francis nephew? His real name is Nicholas Coppola.

Puzo's dead, so I doubt if he gives a shit.

I'm also sure that James Caan and Robert Duvall don't have a problem with it, since they both reprised their characters for the game.

I am excited to get Duvall on a video game. That is all I have to say.

They are also coming out with a Scarface video game. I don't expect much from either one, but if they get great ratings I will not hesitate to buy one of them
