Coppola To Direct Autobiographical Movie

Veteran filmmaker FRANCIS FORD COPPOLA is making an autobiographical movie based on the conflicting generations of an artistic family. TETRO, which Coppola will produce and direct, is based on what the 67-year-old describes as his own "very unusual family". Coppola's late father CARMINE COPPOLA was a composer; his sister TALIA SHIRE is an actress; and his nephews NICOLAS CAGE and JASON SCHWARTZMAN are both actors. He says, "I think at this age, I'm more disposed to look at my life in terms of dramatic material. "Maybe I'm less frightened or more confident about writing something that is fiction even though it has its basis in real things that I've seen and felt. Maybe it won't offend anybody, I hope."
