Francis Ford Coppola’s Next Movie May Be His Most Ambitious Since ‘The Godfather’ Trilogy | Movie News | Movies.com
There were previous reports about Francis Ford Coppola returning to his roots for a decades-spanning film about an Italian-American family, and THR is indicating that the Godfather filmmaker is ready to proceed.
The dramatic saga will take place between the 1930s and 1960s (not unlike The Godfather‘s 1945 to 1955 time frame) and center on a teen boy and girl’s coming-of-age story. The Wrap adds that “dance will be a key element” in the movie. It’s hard to say if there will be any crossover with Coppola’s previous mob drama, but the familiarity is certainly an exciting prospect.
In a previous interview, Coppola described how his own family and their traditions became the inspiration for his Mafia characters. Note that he mentions some of them were musicians, which makes us wonder about that link to dance and if the new movie will be more biographical than most:
