Paramount and Puzo Estate Settle 'The Godfather' Lawsuit

by Rainier on Feb. 7, 2009 @ 1:00 p.m. PST

Featuring non-linear action-adventure gameplay, The Godfather will offer gamers countless choices for solving the family's problems with brutal violence, skillful diplomacy, or a cunning mixture of both. From mob hits and bank heists to drive-bys and extortion, step deep inside the world of The Godfather where intimidation and negotiation are your tickets to the top. Players will use their powers of loyalty and fear to earn respect through interactions with characters in the world. Decisions made by the player in the game will have lasting consequences, just as it was in the mob underworld featured in The Godfather fiction.
In June of last year, Anthony Puzo, son of The Godfather author Mario Puzo, sued Paramount Pictures for $1 million in damages for breach of contract over unpaid revenue from EA's video game adaptation of the movie trilogy. Reports have it that Paramount has now settled the case out of court with the plaintiff, although no terms were revealed.
