A movie based on the making of The Godfather is being scripted

by Paul Heath

HBO are reportedly developing a scripted movie based around the making of The Godfather. According to Variety, the film will focus on the young filmmaker Francis Ford Coppola and his ‘nightmarish’ journey in bringing the film to the screen in the 1970s.

Andrew Farotte is the man who has written the screenplay, which is titled Francis and The Godfather, referring to the legendary filmmaker and his masterpiece of a movie. According to the trade, the film ‘tells the behind-the-scenes story of the film’s creation, from Coppola joining the project to the casting of Al Pacino and Marlon Brando to dealings with the real-life New York mafia.’

No timescales involved as yet as Farotte is reworking his original 2015 screenplay, which featured on the Black List, the best scripts of the year.

We’re assuming that the project is being developed for the subscription-based U.S. cable channel.

We’ll keep you updated.
