Godfather film director whacks Godfather game

Francis Ford Coppola is none too pleased with Electronic Arts' adaptation of his classic mob movie...

"I knew nothing about it. They never asked me if I thought it was a good idea," he [Francis Ford Coppola] reportedly said. His ire was further riled when he was given a preview build of the game by EA. "They use the characters everyone knows, 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 was quoted as saying.

I would like to know what kind of rock Francis Ford Coppola has been living under to not know that this game would be about going around and killing people. I mean, hello! They go around killing people in the movies. That and games with shootings and killing seem to sell really well.

I bet he is really pissed because he is not getting a cut.

What? In the godfather movies??? These three movies are three of the most boring movies I've seen in my entire life. Most of the time, it's about some stupid love story or some freaking family reunion. I can hardly remember any shooting happening at all.

I doubt it. First of all, he doesn't need the money. Second, they're his most important movies. His life's work. I'd be pissed if somebody adapted my movies, especially movies like those, movies which some people consider the best ever made, to a game without my knowledge, consent or input, too.
