Ok, don’t get too excited, it’s only a suggestion Andy Garcia has for the film. Garcia talked to The Calgary Sun about the fourth flick, saying that the fourth film has yet to be greenlit by Paramount. The irony and fascination for me is that — with all the movies Paramount takes risks on each year — they have this franchise people are desperate to see and they won’t green-light it," he says
Garcia says when he was shooting The Godfather: Part III "there were already things Mario Puzo and Francis Coppola had worked out for a fourth film. It would be about Sonny Corleone in his 20s because that was Mario’s favourite character.".
"I suggested Leonardo DiCaprio to Francis, who says he’s very interested, but Paramount would have to hire (Coppola) simply as a director and writer."
Garcia adds there would be a parallel story dealing with his character, so the film would take place in two eras flashing back and forth. "On one side of the movie, you’d have a young demographic, which Hollywood is looking for, and then there’s the other side with older actors. "
