Movie Casting What-Ifs by helitzur

Question 11

Sofia Coppola's ill-fated casting in The Godfather Part III was due to the last-minute scramble to find a replacement for the key role of Michael Corleone's daughter. Which established young actress (18 years old at the time) had withdrawn just prior to the start of shooting, citing exhaustion from overwork on prior projects? Any hard feelings the director may have had about her decision apparently didn't last very long--she went on to appear in his next movie.
