Speaking with the New York Times about the de marketing campaign The Godfather - Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone, new edition of The Godfather - Part III which will arrive in Italy in a few days, the director Francis Ford Coppola spoke of a possible future for the famous saga.
Coppola commented: "There may very well be a Godfather 4, or a Godfather 5 and a Godfather 6", adding:"I don't own The Godfather". Furthermore Paramount, the studio behind the trilogy, said: "While there are no upcoming plans for another film in the Godfather saga, given the lasting power of his legacy, there remains a possibility should the right story emerge.".
Further sequels to existing franchises are becoming the order of the day, but should other Corleone family stories arrive, Coppola will not be involved. In fact, the director confirmed: "I will not be part of it. But I am an old man. I like that life is an experience from which to continuously learn. I felt a sense of completion after the first movie. I felt that in the first film I had put all the potential that I had seen in the book. I felt satisfied."
Al Pacino, who played Michael Corleone in the trilogy, he added that he could be involved in potential future films, which "looks like that now, doesn't it? Someone for sure will come and call me for advice." If you are confused as to how Michael died at the end of The Godfather Part 3, may still have a part to play, know that everything will be explained in The Godfather Coda. Andy Garcia, who played Vincent Corleone, said: "Not a week goes by that someone doesn't come up to me and say, 'Hey, man, where's Godfather 4?' Who knows if I'll get the call".
Coppola flirted with the idea of directing a fourth installment of the saga right after the release of The Godfather III: that those plans are destined to materialize? We'll see.
Waiting for our special dedicated to The Godfather - Coda, we leave you to the official trailer of the new edition of the film.
