Godfather Author's Estate Sues Over Videogame Revenue

The estate of 'Godfather' author Mario Puzo has filed a lawsuit against Paramount Pictures claiming the studio owes at least $1million in revenues from the game 'The Godfather'.

According to the suit, Puzo's estate alleges Paramount breached a 1992 contract giving the studio 'audio-visual' rights for the Godfather saga or related works.

"Despite the vast wealth Puzo created for Paramount, it has refused to pay his children their agreed share of the revenue from that audio-visual product," the lawsuit states.

Electronic Arts published the game, and is currently developing a sequel.
