Yeeeeeah this reeks of a desperate studio trying to squeeze a few more bucks out of one of its beloved franchises. Nothing wrong with that in principle but the movie’s not salvageable.
Five bucks and a donut that Paramount, in search of a competing 70's-80's brand name, said "Let's reboot/legacy The Godfather", for which they needed Al Pacino to be the Old Franchise Survivor, and nobody remembered that Michael died at the end of G3.
And that started the old discussions about why nobody really remembers G3 except for Sophia Coppola's short acting career.
If Godfather had been a Warner movie, we wouldn't be ASKING why this was being made...
