A lawsuit filed against Paramount Pictures by the Mario Puzo estate, which claims that the company owes $1 million
to the deceased writer's family for sales and rentals of the 2006 video game adaptation of The Godfather
, was settled out of court Friday
. Electronic Arts, developer and publisher of the title, wasn't involved in the suit, as Paramount was responsible for handling the film's licensing rights. The terms of the settlement have yet to be explicitly explained, but we're guessing Paramount made the Puzo estate an offer that they found impossible to turn down
. Wait, we mean -- dammit!
