Coppola back on Italian-Americans

Francis Ford Coppola is making a film about an Italian-American family

Francis Ford Coppola is set to direct a film about an Italian-American family spanning 30 years.

The Godfather director will be heading for similar themes to his most famous work by focusing on the family in the same time period, says The Hollywood Reporter.

His new, as yet untitled film will be set between the 1930s and 1960s, while The Godfather followed the Corleone family from 1945 to 1955.

Coppola will also be writing the screenplay, a coming-of-age story about a boy and girl in their late teens.

The last film that the famous American filmmaker directed was 2011 horror thriller Twixt and his recent projects have been independently or self financed.

Coppola hasn't worked on a film about the Italian-American community since The Godfather III which came out in 1990.
