The Godfather of Sold

Here is something interesting from Reuters:

The late Marlon Brando (news) will star in "The Godfather" again, beginning with a trailer for a video game that aired Tuesday on Spike TV's "Video Game Awards 2004" live broadcast.

The game, the latest from Electronic Arts' growing slate of Hollywood licenses, will be based on both Francis Ford Coppola's 1972 movie and the original novel by Mario Puzo.

EA acquired the rights to use Brando's likeness for the game prior to the actor's death July 1 and is working with Paramount Pictures during the project. The game developer and publisher has not announced deals with any other talent from the film, but the game is not slated to ship until fall 2005.

As I said recently, Marlon Brando was an Advanced actor. I wonder if the object of the game is to kill the character Sofia Coppola played in "Godfather III."
