“Godfather” prequel heading to book stores; Will film follow?


By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Sequels to Francis Ford Coppola’s vintage “The Godfather” no longer are possible … and truthfully, we’re pretty happy about that.

But would you be interested in seeing a “Godfather” prequel?

That appears to be where we are heading now that Grand Central Publishing revealed plans for a prequel novel to Mario Puzo’s best-selling “Godfather” books due in stores in June 2012.

Yes, Puzo has passed. But “The Family Corleone” will be written by author Ed Falco, which he’ll base on one of Puzo’s unproduced screenplay. According to Grand Central, the story is set in 1930s Depression-era New York and will tell how Vito Corleone rose to power.

Um, isn’t that the plot of Coppola’s “Godfather: Part II?”

Anyway, Puzo’s son, Tony, said in a statement that the novel “is true to Mario Puzo’s legacy.” From our perspective, we’re just curious to see if Hollywood will grab the rights to a “Family Corleone” film. Would Coppola be interested in directing? Could Robert De Niro direct? And who would star? We’ll see.
