Francis Ford Coppola unlikely to make big studio films

HollywoodNews.com: Francis Ford Coppola will continue to make small, indie films.

The director announced his creative game plan at a private party during the New York City Wine & Food Festival.

“(My) future film projects would be small- budget and big on (my) personal experiences,” said the Oscar winning director.

It’s no surprise to hear this. Since 1986 when his son Gio died in a boating accident, Coppola has devoted most of his resume to making smaller films. The last big studio-like film he directed was the 1997 feature adaptation of the John Grisham legal novel “The Rainmaker” starring Matt Damon, Mickey Rourke, Jon Voight, Danny DeVito and Claire Danes.

Coppola’s last film, which was shot in black and white and lensed in Argentina, “Tetro,” was lost at the global box office with a total cume of just under $3 million.

Coppola’s favorite movie in his list of credits, per Page Six, isn’t “The Godfather,” rather the Matt Dillon headliner “Rumble Fish.”
