LONDON - Director Francis Ford Coppola probably never thought that the house used as Marlon Brando’s character’s home in his movie “Godfather” would be sold for almost $3 million.
The elderly owner of the house in Staten Island, New York passed away last month, and the house has since been put on the market for $2.9 million.
“I remember when they filmed the wedding in the backyard. People know it. Japanese tourists come here to take pictures,” femalefirst.co.uk quoted Elaine Albert, a neighbour, as saying.
The home is set in a 7,000 square metre land and includes a swimming pool and a garage big enough for four cars.
