Another Coppola Joins Family Business

FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA's granddaughter GIA has become the latest member of the family to follow in the director's footsteps - she's shot her first short film.
The 23 year old, whose father is Coppola's eldest son Gian-Carlo, has taken her first steps into the movie business by making a promo for fashion designer Zac Posen.
Her directorial debut will promote Posen's collection for U.S. store Target, and the designer is convinced Gia is the next big talent to emerge from the Coppola family.
He says, "She's going to be the next Coppola force to be reckoned with. They just genetically, aesthetically, have something - they're able to capture magic."
Coppola's daughter Sofia, Gia's aunt, has forged her own successful directing career, winning her first Oscar for 2003's Lost in Translation.
