KoreaTimes reported today that the new slapstick comedy The Last Godfather will be opening in 12 cities across the United States and Canada on April 1, care of Roadside Attractions, before hitting European and Asian theaters. The movie was directed, produced and written by former comedian Shim Hyung-rae (also known as Ray Shim), a name you might remember as the writer, director and producer of Dragon Wars, which was released widely in the US a few years ago.
Shim also stars in the film as the idiot son of a mafia boss played by Harvey Keitel, who is being trained as successor to his father. Jason Mewes (as in Jay in Jay & Silent Bob) also stars, as do Michael Rispoli, Blake Clark and Jocelin Donahue (from The House Of The Devil). According to the article, the film is a parody of Francis Ford Coppola's gangster franchise.
The trailer definitely has promise. Here's to hoping Shim's talents as a comedian make this more worthwhile than Dragon Wars.
