An Offer He Could Refuse

Sunday sniping Francis Ford Coppola is hopping mad at Paramount for turning his "Godfather" into a violent video game (due out October 2005).

Coppola, appearing on AMC's "Sunday Morning ShootOut" this Sunday (11 a.m.), says he never gave his permission for the video game - not that he was even asked about it.

"I knew nothing about it. They never asked me if I thought it was a good idea," he says. "I went and I took a look at what it was . . . What they do is they use the characaters everyone knows and they hire those actors to be there and only to introduce very minor characters. And then for the next hour they shoot and kill each other.

"I had absolutely nothing to do with the game and I disapprove," he says. "I think it's a misuse of film . . . "

The Godfather, published by EA Arts and developed by EA Redwood Shores, is expected out October 3, 2005.
