here were previous reports about Francis Ford Coppola returning to his roots for a decades-spanning film about an Italian-American family, and THR is indicating that the Godfather filmmaker is ready to proceed.
The dramatic saga will take place between the 1930s and 1960s (not unlike The Godfather‘s 1945 to 1955 time frame) and center on a teen boy and girl’s coming-of-age story. The Wrap adds that “dance will be a key element” in the movie. It’s hard to say if there will be any crossover with Coppola’s previous mob drama, but the familiarity is certainly an exciting prospect.
Tom George's insight:
Interesting development from Francis Ford Coppola.
There’s a great line in the movie, Easy A that speaks to the uniqueness of Florida.
Due to his “condition,” Micah was sent on an extended visit to his grandparents’ in Palatka, Florida. And if there’s one thing worse than chlamydia, it’s Florida.
If you haven’t seen the movie, please do. One of the funniest films in years.
If you listen to Adam Carolla’s podcast he routinely has a feature called “Germany or Florida.” They pick some insane and depraved story (often somebody on drugs killing livestock, making love to livestock, or battering livestock) and the crew has to guess whether it happened in Germany or Florida.
Florida, as a whole, sucks. We’re all on the same page about this one. Yes, there are nice pockets. I happened to be in one this past weekend.
It’s that time of year again… the kids are feeling the sense that summer is beginning to wrap up. Most vacations are over, camps have concluded, and that little sense of dread is gripping the heart of children nation-wide. The hilarious Staples back-to-school commercials are beginning to air, and Mothers can be seen smirking behind their children’s back.
Yet, there is a slight sense of dread that reaches even the parents across the country: How am I going to be able to pay for all of the supplies my kids need? And how much are they going to fight me when they don’t get the “coolest” gear out there?
Well, parents… Here’s a little something to soothe your nerves as you plan your back-to-school shopping pilgrimage. For a limited time, you can purchase this $25 voucher and redeem it online with Colorado Bag’N Baggage for $50 worth of merchandise!

StumbleUpon is riding the explosion in popularity of mobile devices and Facebook.
SAN FRANCISCO—StumbleUpon is emerging as a TV Guide to the Facebook masses.
The Web discovery destination has garnered gobs of traffic for its service that helps people zero in on Internet interests and share them across mobile devices and Facebook. It’s also caught the eyes of investors, who last month took a $17 million stake in the company for its promise as a next-generation social-sharing tool, not to mention advertising bonanza.
StumbleUpon has thrived where others haven’t because Facebook and Twitter became the venue of choice for sharing, says Danny Sullivan, editor of Search Engine Land. “StumbleUpon is channel surfing, and that’s a behavior the online audience apparently wants to do and it translates really well to mobile.”
With the high growth and expanded corporate usage of newer, shinier social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter, it’s easy to overlook (10 Reasons Blogs Are Critical to Social Media Marketing http://t.co/xrs2qwV)
