The estate of Mario Puzo, the author of The Godfather, has settled its suit with Paramount Pictures over royalties from The Godfather: The Game (video game). Puzo's estate claimed it was owed profits from sales and rentals of the game. On Friday an agreement was reached so the case won't go to trial.
"We think it's a terrific settlement," Puzo estate's attorney Bert Fields told Yahoo.
The terms of the settlement were not revealed. It's also unknown at this time whether the agreement was reached after several large men in fedoras showed up at Paramounts offices and calmly explained that the settlement offer was one that Paramount could not refuse.
