The film's success actually led to an odd little pseudo-SharedUniverse of films, mainly by virtue of being based on the same real-life case. The success of the film led to one true sequel, the entirely fictional ''The French Connection II'', with Doyle heading to Marseille in the hopes that his first-hand recognition of Charnier will help put pressure on the manufacturing end of the line. ''Film/PopeyeDoyle'', a [[RecycledTheSeries TV pilot movie]] was made in 1986, with Creator/EdONeill as [[TheOtherDarrin Doyle]]. ''Film/TheSevenUps'' is a SpiritualSuccessor starring Roy Scheider as an {{Expy}} of Cloudy Russo. Finally, in 2014 Cédric Jiminez made ''La French''[[note]]Called ''[[MarketBasedTitle The Connection]]'' in Anglophone countries.[[/note]], based on the same case, [[POVSequel but covering the events on the Marseille end.]]
