Paramount Didn't Make Mario Puzo's Family an Offer They Couldn't Refuse
The two sides have stared each other down before. In 1992, a fee disagreement led to a new financial arrangement between the parties. According to the new complaint, the parties entered "into an agreement pursuant to which Puzo was to receive a significant share in the revenue of audio-visual products to be sold or rented to the public embodying elements of the 'Godfather' pictures."
In 2006, Paramount licensed the rights to a video game to video game publisher Electronic Arts. According to some estimates, the game has grossed revenues of $41 million.
Puzo died in 1999, leaving everything to his children. The estate says they haven't been paid properly by Paramount.
