Gian-Carlo Coppola was an American film producer.
Like his brother and sister, Gian-Carlo—known to his family and friends as Gio—often featured in his father's movies as background characters.
Coppola was killed in a speedboating accident in May 1986 at the age of 22 in Annapolis, Maryland. Griffin O'Neal, who was piloting the boat, had attempted to pass between two slow-moving boats, failing to realize in his haste that both boats were connected by a towline. While O'Neal barely had time to duck, Coppola was struck and killed.
