Brian De Palma or Robert De Niro (Director)
Robert Downy Jr- Michael Corleone
Viggo Mortenson- Sonny Corleone
Marisa Tomei - Connie Corleone

Paul Sorvino is the only actor I think that could replace Brando for this one.
A real long shot would be Dom DeLoise, but I think he would want to do just one serious role in his lifetime.
To replace Al Pacino, Leonard DiCaprio would seem the best move. He certainly has the intensity and is about the right age.
Either the Coen Brothers or Quintin Tarantino should direct. Martin Scorsese is the obvious choice for director; but I think Scorsese is too associated with mob movies. I doubt if the subject matter holds any more interest for him. I love Scorsese's movies; but I think he needs to jump a bit out of the rut.
Joel & Ethan Coen have proven they can tackle just about any genre and they did an exceptional job on "Miller's Crossing" which covers simmilar territory.
Tarantino has the capablity to do it, but he has sort of lost his way lately. This type of movie might bring him back towards the popularity and respect he deserves.

Umm.... casting would be really tough but maybe put Andy Garcia back because he was the last godfather. Director maybe Scott Ridley or Martin Scorsese
