In what could potentially be very exciting news, it seems that Francis Ford Coppola is returning to what he does best – arguably better than anyone when he’s on top of his game…
Yes, according to Darkhorizons the director is getting ready to direct an untitled movie “chronicling an Italian-American family from the 1930s to the 1960s.”
He is writing the screenplay about a boy and a girl in their lates teens: “Coppola has also setup offices at the Paramount lot for the project, but no conversations have yet been held as to whether the studio will be involved with financing or distributing. Courtney Bright and Nicole Daniels will star in the project, while Fred Roos will produce.” reports Darkhorizons.
