Diane Keaton, the screen legend had admitted recently that she did not originally like The Godfather: Part III of Francis Ford Coppola when it was released in the year 1990.

The third entry in the award-winning and very highly acclaimed series, Godfather did not fare and its predecessors and has long been considered the weak link in the crime family saga.

The original Godfather movie was only the second film that Keaton had ever starred in when she took on Micael Corleone‘s girlfriend/wife, Kay. Al Pacino played the iconic role of Michael Corleone.

Her story forms a subtle arc throughout the Godfather series, ultimately showcasing the complete transformation of the character in the third part.

Despite the loose ends that part III ties up in terms of its characters, the popularity of the film, or, as some would argue, its quality, can not match what the two previous movies in the series offered.

Even Diane Keaton could have once been counted as one of the detractors of the film. But with the upcoming release of the cut of the director, the newly re-titled The Godfather Coda: The Death of Michael Corleone, has changed the mind of the star.

The director cut of Coppola has been making news for some time now. With its release dates approaching fast, the fans of the series are likely to be very eager to see just how different the movie is.

It is going to be released on December 4, with limited theatrical engagement, on Digital and Blu-Ray. One thing that is known about the film is that it contains a different starting and end, the two major components of any film.

Over the years, the ending of the movie, in particular, has been criticized by the fans. However, the Godfather Part III has numerous qualities that may have held it back compared to its earlier counterparts.
