Sofia Coppola's Next

Apr. 17, 2009by: Mike Sampson

After taking some time off after the disappointment that was MARIE ANTOINETTE (it actually wasn't a terrible film, it was more a perceived disappointment), writer/director Sofia Coppola is back. Coppola has set up the dramedy SOMEWHERE at Focus Features and set Steven Dorff and Elle Fanning to star. Set at the infamous Chateau Marmont in Hollywood, the film will follow a "bad boy" actor (Dorff) who's been staying at the hotel, getting drunk, getting high and getting laid. He's forced to reexamine his life when his 11-year-old daughter (Fanning) makes an unexpected visit. Coppola was able to secure permission to shoot at the Marmont and will begin production this summer. For those unfamiliar with the mystery of the Marmont, you can start at the Wikipedia page, which gives a pretty good rundown of all the insanity that's taken place at the hotel over the years from Belushi to Lohan.

I love Sofia Coppola, one of few truely good female filmakers.
I liked Marie Antoinette, the film was pure eye candy, regardless if it's not a true account.

Cool

I actually liked Marie Antionette. Never thought I would, but it ended up being pretty good.

Say what you will, but Sofia Coppola is among the best auteurs working today. Marie Antoinette was one of the most original films of the last decade. If her last name wasn't Coppola and if she were male, people would be praising the shit out of her.

I'm willing to give this flick a shot, since I liked Virgin Suicides and Lost in Translation. I think Sofia Coppola's biggest strength as a director is the way she's able to pull great performances out of her actors. Hopefully the script will be a good one.
