‘Godfather III’ is getting a new Director’s Cut and a brand new title as well

Coppola has created a new beginning and ending for the trilogy finale

Godfather III was a box office hit on one side, but somewhat of a critical flop on the other. Famed director, Francis Ford Coppola, wasn’t too happy with the final version either.

Now, on the eve of its 30th anniversary, the film will get a new director’s cut, but also a new title: Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone. “Coda Colon” as it is already known under a shorter version of the title will be released on blu-ray and digitally on December 8, 2020.

Talking about this new version, Coppola said in a statement: “Mario Puzo’s THE GODFATHER, Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone is an acknowledgment of Mario’s and my preferred title and our original intentions for what became The Godfather: Part III. For this version of the finale, I created a new beginning and ending, and rearranged some scenes, shots, and music cues. With these changes and the restored footage and sound, to me, it is a more appropriate conclusion to The Godfather and The Godfather: Part II and I’m thankful to Jim Gianopulos and Paramount for allowing me to revisit it.”
