Francis Ford Coppola turned down at restaurant due to “Robin Hood” dinner

By Roger Friedman

HollywoodNews.com: Famed Oscar winning director Francis Ford Coppola thought he’d made an offer that wouldn’t be refused. He was wrong.

Coppola and director daughter Sofia Coppola wanted to eat at their favorite Italian restaurant near Cannes last night. They showed up at Michelangelo in Antibes. And were turned away.

Apparently the Coppolas don’t read this column. If they had, they’d have known that Universal Pictures was throwing a private dinner for the cast of Ridley Scott’s “Robin Hood.”

    ummm… I believe Sofia is 8+ pregnant and in NYC so not likely she jetted to Cannes when neither she nor her father have anything being screened there. Check your facts.
