Coppola Plans New Italian-American Epic

Francis Ford Coppola is reportedly readying an untitled film chronicling an Italian-American family from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Coppola is writing the screenplay, which is described as a coming-of-age story that focuses on a boy and girl in their late teens.

Coppola has also setup offices at the Paramount lot for the project, but no conversations have yet been held as to whether the studio will be involved with financing or distributing.

Courtney Bright and Nicole Daniels will star in the project, while Fred Roos will produce.
