This is too cute! I just had to share it. The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences (The Oscars) shared this on their Facebook page with the caption “Francis Ford Coppola in 1974 during the production of “The Godfather: Part II” (a film he would win three Oscars for – Best Picture, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Director), with his daughter Sofia.

Yes, ladies and gentlemen they’ve already announced the movies playing at Sundance 2014. Since the festival prides itself over the fact that it almost exclusively picks movies from new-comer directors or lesser known filmmakers sometimes the only guidelines we have when picking a Sundance indie is the cast.

The Godfather director Francis Ford Coppola announced a new film, revolving around an Italo-American boy and girl in their late teens.

As a fan of Coppola’s work this is exciting news, I can’t wait to hear more. It sounds like yet another very personal and intimate film from the Italo-American director that has given us classics such as The Conversation, The Godfather films and Apocalypse Now. Most of Coppola’s films revolve around youths, and specifically teenagers, especially in: The Outsiders, Rumble Fish and Peggy Sue Got Married.
