Oscar-winning director Francis Ford Coppola discusses with "CBS This Morning" co-host Anthony Mason why he decided to re-cut the third film in The Godfather saga thirty years after it premiered. With a new beginning, ending and title, the new film titled "“Mario Puzo’s The Godfather: Coda, The Death of Michael Corleone” is finally a satisfying epilogue to the saga according to Coppola. The film will be available in select theaters starting December 4th and on Blu-Ray and digitally on Amazon December 8th.
