Andy Wants A New Godfather
Andy Garcia has an offer he thinks Paramount Pictures shouldn’t refuse.
Make Godfather 4.
“Every single day, someone asks me about the status of Godfather 4,” says Garcia who played Vinny Corleone in 1990’s The Godfather: Part III.
“The irony and fascination for me is that — with all the movies Paramount takes risks on each year — they have this franchise people are desperate to see and they won’t green-light it.”
Garcia says when he was shooting The Godfather: Part III “there were already things Mario Puzo and Francis Coppola had worked out for a fourth film.
“It would be about Sonny Corleone in his 20s because that was Mario’s favourite character.”
James Caan played Sonny in 1972’s The Godfather.
“I suggested Leonardo DiCaprio to Francis, who says he’s very interested, but Paramount would have to hire (Coppola) simply as a director and writer.”
Garcia says there would be a parallel story dealing with his character, so the film would take place in two eras flashing back and forth.
“On one side of the movie, you’d have a young demographic, which Hollywood is looking for, and then there’s the other side with older actors.
“It seems the concept appeals to everyone except the executives at Paramount Pictures.”
